A-G: Give new government a chance to address mandatory retirement controversy

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday wrote to the High Court of Justice that it should reject a petition which seeks to strike the mandatory retirement law for being too inflexible and unconstitutional in order to give the new government post-elections time to reevaluate the issue.

Weinstein suggested that the debate was a hot political issue with unresolved disputes not only about having retirement be mandatory, but about raising the age of retirement.

He said that the people’s political representatives, in the form of the next Knesset, not the courts, should resolve the debate.
