Coalition tables bill to prevent forced PM recusal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition on Sunday tabled a bill that would prevent his forced recusal by the attorney general or the courts.
Netanyahu must provide the Supreme Court with an answer by May 12, explaining why he should not recuse himself from the position of prime minister after being on trial for corruption and his government's push to change the judicial system in Israel.
The bill was tabled by a member of Netanyahu's Likud party and would require a majority of two-thirds of the government or 90 out of the 120 members of the Knesset before the prime minister would be required to recuse himself.
