Likud MK proposes controversial limitations on lawmakers’ petitions to High Court

In an attempt to maintain checks and balances between the branches of government, Knesset House Committee chairman Yoav Kisch (Likud) plans to propose a bill to stop MKs from petitioning the High Court of Justice to overturn votes by the legislature, he announced Thursday.

The Likud MK said “the situation in which MKs and parties who lost votes in the Knesset turn to the High Court as a way to circumvent the Knesset shows a total disrespect for legitimate democratic decisions and the Knesset’s independence.”
