Government approves 'Mini-Norwegian law'

The Norwegian Law was approved by the cabinet on Sunday.
The new bill would allow ministers to resign from the Knesset but return to being an MK if he or she is fired from the cabinet.
Based on the model of the Scandinavian country's government, the proposed legislation requires each minister to be replaced in the legislature by a candidate from his or her party's ballot. If the minister is fired or resigns, he or she would reclaim a place in the Knesset and the substitute would no longer be a lawmaker
The bill is meant to increase separation of powers, changing the current situation in which about a third of MKs cannot fully function as parliamentarians, because they are ministers or deputy ministers, and a central part of a lawmakers' job is to oversee the executive branch of government.
