Chief justice: 'Judicial review a guarantee for Israel's democratic existence'

Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut voiced criticism to the proposed legislation of an override power allowing the Knesset to reenact laws struck down by the court.


At a speech given at Tel Aviv University, Hayut said, "When we seek to boast to the world—and rightfully so—of being the sole democracy in the Middle East, we must remember one of the requisite guarantees (for that) is preserving an independent, professional and impartial judiciary that carries out judicial review to defend its fundamental principles."
