Former Israeli minister: Bring judiciary reforms to a referendum

Former social equality and pensioners minister, Yesh Atid MK Meirav Cohen, called on the government to bring Justice Minister Yariv Levin's judicial reforms to a national referendum in a Saturday evening Twitter thread.

[Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and the Likud demanded a referendum for the maritime border agreement with Lebanon which did not affect anyone," Cohen explained. "Minimal fairness requires bringing this reform to a referendum. And don't tell me that the election was a referendum," she continued.

"You want to change Israel's system of government?...[let] Israeli voters vote on all articles of the reform."
