The bill proposed by MK Miki Zohar (Likud) to cancel the 2013 law limiting the number of ministers in a government to 18, has been approved on Wednesday by the Knesset House Committee, and will move to second and third votes in the Knesset.

The Knesset House Committee voted in favor of advancing the bill to the second and third vote in the Knesset, with eight members voting in favor and six against.

The bill, which will have to go through two more votes in the Knesset, would allow Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to appoint as many ministers as he needs to complete the coalition negotiations and form a government.
