Live Blog: Knesset c’tee discusses controversial MK suspension bill

A controversial new bill allowing 90 MKs to vote to suspend a colleague is being prepared in the Knesset’s Constitutional Committee on Monday afternoon, set to advance in the parliamentary chamber for a first reading.

Last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged  Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky (Bayit Yehudi) to work towards passing the legislation, hoping members of the opposition also vote in favor of the bill, stating: "there are certain limits democracies must set in order to protect themselves, and we will fulfill that in this case.”
