The Knesset is to vote Wednesday on the controversial Norwegian Law, which would allow a minister or deputy minister from each coalition party to quit the Knesset and return if they leave the cabinet.
The Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee passed it late Tuesday, enabling the bill’s legislation to be finalized before the Knesset begins its extended summer recess at the conclusion of Wednesday night’s Knesset session. However, the opposition vowed to filibuster, which could delay the bill’s passage to Thursday.
The bill was initially supposed to apply to factions of 12 or fewer members. But an amendment passed unanimously in the committee on Tuesday that would allow three ministers in Likud to quit the Knesset and return if they leave the cabinet.
