Justice Ministry working on new version of ‘Zoabi Bill’

Legislation expanding the possibility to ban people who openly support terrorism from running for the Knesset is expected to be brought to the Ministerial Committee for Legislation next week, with the Justice Ministry’s input.

The original amendment to Basic Law: The Knesset by MK Sharon Gal (Yisrael Beytenu), was supposed to go to a ministerial vote on Sunday, but was pulled so that the Justice Ministry can “soften” it and come up with a compromise version that both Yisrael Beytenu and the government can support, Gal’s spokeswoman said.
