Zulat’s President Zehava Galon attended a meeting of the Knesset’s Constitution Committee accompanied by a team of former MKs and ministers, as part of Zulat’s Emergency Call-Up project to fight against the government’s proposed regime revolution and for democracy. The session revolved around Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s proposed reform, in particular the clause dealing with the legal counsels of government ministries and the attempt to turn their jobs into positions of trust and reduce the minister’s obligation to follow their advice.
Galon said: “I am sitting here today, and with me around the table are former MKs who signed up to sit in on Knesset committee sessions in the coming months, MKs from Right, Left, and Center, from all ends of the political spectrum, to fend off the regime revolution you are trying to promote here. Mr. Chairman, the fact that you titled the discussion ‘Zion Shall Be Redeemed With Judgment: Restoring Justice to the Justice System’ and that you are quoting the prophet Isaiah does not turn the looting of democracy into something Jewish. It is anti-Jewish!
“The proposal about the legal counsels must be taken as a package deal. On the table are the opinions of our own Zulat institute, of the Forum of Law Lecturers for Democracy, and of many other organizations sitting here. I propose to the MKs to go over them carefully because they present a different position from the one presented by the justice minister…. What you want to do is to eliminate the entire democratic regime, to carry out a regime revolution. This is not a judicial reform but a regime revolution.”
