Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Sunday said she would initiate a new level of transparency regarding publicizing the voting records of the members of the ministerial legislative committee she chairs.

Livni opened her first meeting as justice minister stating that, “I think it is right to act in the committee with transparency, including [on] how the ministers decide to vote, and I intend to check if, and to what extent, there are limitations on this decision.”She continued, “We are referring to proceedings for which secrecy does not apply, and how the ministers vote on proposed laws which impact all of our lives is not a state secret.”

The Legal Forum for Israel praised Livni’s comments about publicizing the records. Its director Nahi Eyal commented on the need for transparency.
