Knesset approves first reading of MK suspension bill

The Knesset voted in favor of a controversial amendment to the Basic Law: Knesset, by which lawmakers would be able to vote to suspend colleagues who support terrorism by a 90-MK majority, in a first reading Monday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his support for the bill, which was his brainchild, saying at a Likud faction meeting that it is “meant to remove MKs who stand against Israel and for terrorism.”
