Opposition rebuffs PM in political spat over vote on controversial bills

Published: 03.10.14, 11:50 / Israel News

Israel's opposition parties, led by Labor chair Isaac Herzog, on Monday rejected an olive branch from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and launched a boycott of debates on three controversial bills that the coalition had planned to pass en masse.


The political spat began over the weekend, after the coalition drafted an agreement that would bind all of its members to vote in bulk

in favor of the bills to change military draft requirements for the ultra-Orthodox, require a referendum on any land transfers in a peace deal, and raise the bar for admission of parties to the Knesset.


Netanyahu worked together with his government on a compromise in an effort to end the row, which the opposition promptly rejected. The compromise would have given the Knesset more time to debate the bills. (Moran Azoulay)
