At a meeting on Tuesday with Romania's Justice Minister Robert Kozenchuk, Justice Minister designate Ayelet Shaked said that "we are proud of our Supreme Court," and called it one of the most admired worldwide.

At the same time, Shaked told Kozenchuk that the country is hotly debating how activist and interventionist the Supreme Court should be in contradicting Knesset legislation as well as how justices should be appointed.Shaked said she thinks the court should be more conservative about intervention.

Kozenchuk told Shaked that Romania's politicians have no role in its appointments to its Supreme Court, but that politicians are involved in appointments to a separate Romanina special constitutional court - something Israel does not have to date.
