On January 2nd. 2023, MK Rotman, Chairman of the Constitution Committee submitted a proposal for amendments To the Basic Law: The Judiciary. The proposal has no status at this stage given that it has not yet been submitted to the committee as either a private or a governmental bill.
Zulat’s position is that this proposal is the same as the proposal for a regime revolution by the Minister of Justice Levin and even more serious in the aspect of the overcoming clause.
There is no guarantee that the components left unmentioned by MK Rotman will not be brought up down the road (i.e., public hearings for Supreme Court candidates and abolition of the seniority system). MKs must refuse to engage in a debate before the government reveals all the “chapters” of the package of legislative amendments that it intends to promote based on the coalition agreements. The “salami method” is designed to confuse MKs and the public regarding the comprehensive move planned by the government to effect a regime revolution.
MKs must refuse to discuss any proposed amendment separately. Instead, they must treat them as a single package that will transform Israel into an authoritarian regime and completely eliminate the checks and balances between the branches of government.
