The Movement for the Quality of Government in Israel on Sunday doubled-down with a second petition to the High Court of Justice to disqualify Shas party leader Arye Deri and Kulanu No. 2 Yoav Galant from serving as ministers in the incoming government.
Last week, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in two extensive legal opinions that there is no legal bar to either Shas party leader Arye Deri or Kulanu No. 2 Yoav Galant serving as ministers in the incoming government, while saying both appointments “raise difficulties.”
Deri was appointed the new coalition’s next economy minister and Galant is the next construction minister.
