Shaked: Rethink court-Knesset relationship

The courts’ authority in regard to the Knesset must be regulated by law, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked emphasized after the High Court ruled on Tuesday to mostly uphold a third version of the government’s policy to curb illegal migration, after having overturned the previous two.

Shaked praised the ruling, but added that “it’s important in a civilized, democratic country that the definition of the courts’ authority is clear.”

She quoted from Justice Neal Hendel’s section of the ruling that “there is a sort of constitutional discourse between the judiciary and the Knesset, but it is not one between has a different purpose and authorities… The discourse between the court and the Knesset was harmed.”
