Ministers advance bill allowing them to quit Knesset

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation voted to advance a bill Sunday that would enable a minister or deputy minister from each small party to quit the Knesset but return if they leave the cabinet.

If passed into law, the bill would apply to factions of less than a dozen MKs. It still must pass multiple political hurdles to become law but if it does, there would be new MKs in Bayit Yehudi, Shas, and United Torah Judaism.

The bill has been advanced by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, who wants to quit the Knesset to enable the entrance of former MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, the next candidate on the Bayit Yehudi list.
