Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud) said he would hold a special plenum session during the Pessah break to debate legalizing outposts, if presented with the required 25 signatures. Rivlin's comments came after the High Court rejected the state's request to delay the evacuation of the Migron outpost until 2015.

“I am sorry that the negotiations (for a relocation agreement) lasted so long,” he said.

Rivlin added that he believed that it was still possible to execute the agreement reached between the settlers and the government to relocate the outpost.

He called on the government to find temporary housing for the 50 Migron families, until such time as new homes were built for them.
