The Judicial Selection Committee can legally not have any opposition representatives, Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Yinon affirmed Sunday.

MK Robert Ilatov, whose Yisrael Beytenu faction is set to join the coalition this week, is the opposition representative on the committee.

In response to a letter from MK Essawi Frej (Meretz) demanding that Ilatov be removed from the panel, Yinon pointed out that the law does not say there must be coalition and opposition representation on the committee, just two non-minister MKs, one of whom must be a woman.
