Joint List’s Odeh threatens to resign from Knesset if bill is used to remove Balad MKs

The Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee approved a bill by which lawmakers will be able to vote to suspend their colleagues with a 90-MK majority, and it is expected to go to a first reading next week.

Following hours of debate, coalition MKs voted in favor of the controversial amendment to Basic: Law Knesset that would allow 61 MKs to request that the Knesset House Committee suspend an MK, and after a process in the panel during which the potentially-suspended MK can defend him or herself, 90 MKs would have to vote in the plenum for the suspension for it to take effect.
