Leaders of the Camp Sucker protest group, which champions army or civil service for all Israelis, demanded Monday that committee discussions set to begin later in the day be open to the public.

"The committee's discussions must be open to observers from all the protest movements to insure the process is transparent," said Yoav Kish, a Camp Sucker leader. Such openness, he added, was necessary to prevent political wheeling and dealing, and would hold the committee accountable to the public.

Kadima MK Yohanan Plesner will chair the Committee for Advancing Equality and Sharing Burdens for replacing the Tal Law, which allowed haredi (ultra-Orthodox) people to defer army service indefinitely.
