Knesset opens summer session with new MKs’ inaugural speeches and little work on the agenda

The Knesset began its summer session in low gear Monday, with the newest parliamentarians preparing their inaugural speeches and no voting on the docket.

Legislators have two main jobs, passing laws and overseeing the government’s work, and both will be put on hold for at least another week, when the new government will be sworn in – if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeds in forming one.

Even after that, the legislative process will likely be on hold for at least several more days before Knesset committees are filled and their chairpeople are appointed.
