PM Netanyahu promoting expanded override power, Kahlon objects

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is promoting an expanded version of the override power to reenact laws struck down by the High Court.

 

In a meeting held Sunday it turned out Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit did not object to the move, while the premier estimated he could garner enough votes to pass it. Another meeting on the matter will be held Monday.

 

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon objects to an expanded override clause, and supports to curtailing the court's power only on the African migrant issue.
