Interior Minister Eli Yishai ordered Shas MK David Azoulay to submit a bill according to which the interior minister would have the power to revoke citizenships without the authorization of the attorney-general or the court. Currently, Citizenship Law stipulates that revoking citizenship requires the attorney-general's authorization and the court's consent. Yishai is pushing for the amendment in the wake of delays in revoking the citizenships of four Arab Israeli terror suspects currently residing abroad.
