Bill to add MKs may be in trouble

The Knesset voted early Thursday to advance a bill that would enable a minister or deputy minister from each coalition party to quit the Knesset, but return if they leave the cabinet.

The bill passed a preliminary reading by a 67-53 vote with the support of MKs from the coalition and Yisrael Beytenu.

The Knesset House Committee decided Thursday morning that it would be prepared for its final readings in the Knesset Law Committee, which is headed by a staunch supporter of the bill, Bayit Yehudi MK Nissan Slomiansky.
