Coalition lacks majority required to push judicial overhaul, government official says

The coalition does not have the parliamentary majority required to promote further judicial overhaul legislation, a senior government official told Ynet on Tuesday.
"We don't have the majority needed to unilaterally establish the Judicial Selection Committee," the official said against the backdrop of an interview in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his coalition would move to change the makeup of the powerful judges selection committee before halting further legislation.
"Some MKs are already saying privately that they won't support this under any circumstances without consensus." (Moran Azulay)
