MK Ya'acov Edri (Kadima) was attempting on Tuesday to pass a bill limiting the number of no-confidence motions. He noted that last year 284 such motions were proposed, but none of them passed. He called it a cheapening of a very important process. On the other hand, MK Zehava Gal-On (Meretz), called the bill "bullying," Israel Radio reported. Parties with more than 10 MKs are currently not limited in the number of no-confidence motions they may propose. The bill proposes to limit them to twice a month. Edri also proposed to limit smaller parties to two no-confidence motions per Knesset sessions, as opposed to the three that they are now allotted.
