The “Lapid Bill 2,” which would force television-personality-turned-politician Yair Lapid to reveal his campaign’s donors, will be brought to its final Knesset vote after the Knesset House Committee unanimously approved the legislation for its second and third (final) plenum readings on Monday.

The legislation passed through its preliminary reading, first reading and two committee votes in an accelerated process, and is expected to be brought to its final reading this week, before the Knesset recess begins.

The bill, proposed by House Committee chairman Yariv Levin (Likud) and MKs Otniel Schneller (Kadima) and Daniel Ben- Simon (Labor), would require any person or group that declares “in writing or in speech, clearly or through behavior,” an intention to run for a Knesset seat without joining an existing party to follow campaign finance laws and report all donations and income.
