Knesset passes controversial ‘Norwegian Law’

The Knesset Thursday morning passed the controversial Norwegian Law by a vote of 64-51, which allows a minister or deputy minister from each coalition party to quit the Knesset and return if they leave the cabinet.

The Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee passed it late Tuesday, enabling the bill’s legislation to be finalized before the Knesset begins its extended summer recess at the conclusion of Thursday morning’s Knesset session.

The bill was initially supposed to apply to factions of 12 or fewer members. But an amendment passed unanimously in the committee on Tuesday that would allow three ministers in Likud to quit the Knesset and return if they leave the cabinet.
