Following weeks of rumors of an imminent war between the two over the powers of the state’s judiciary, Supreme Court President Miriam Naor and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Tuesday met in Naor’s chambers for their first working meeting.

A statement released after the meeting said the two would continue meeting on a biweekly basis, and that they discussed “pending issues on the court system’s agenda which require cooperation between the courts and the minister.” A spokeswoman for Shaked would not elaborate further on the meeting.

Over the past weeks, while Shaked has expressed her respect for the court, she has also made clear her intent to alter the balance of power between the Supreme Court and the Knesset, by limiting the court’s intervention and canceling laws or government policies.
