In bill referred to as the ‘Bibi Bill,’ term limit proposed for PM

A prime minister in Israel would only be permitted to serve two terms or eight years, according to two bills proposed last week by opposition Knesset members led by the head of the Zionist Union faction, MK Merav Michaeli.

The bill has received support from 33 opposition MKs across the political spectrum including Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman, Joint List head Ayman Odeh, and the heads of every other opposition faction.

Michaeli purposely included a clause in the bill that it would only take effect in the twenty second Knesset, the parliament after the next one, so she would not be accused of directing the bill specifically at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
