PM postpones vote on judicial selection reform bill

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Sunday that the vote on the judicial selection reform bill sponsored by coalition chairman Ze’ev Elkin and MK Yariv Levin of the Likud, would be postponed until next week.
According to the bill, any judge appointed by the Supreme Court president would face a public hearing in the Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee, which would have the right to disqualify the judge from serving in the High Court.
MKs from the coalition and opposition spoke out against the proposal.
