      MK Yoel Hasson Seeks to Limit the Supreme Court's Power


      Member of Knesset Yoel Hasson (Kadima), who chairs the Knesset’s State Control Committee, said on Wednesday that a new bill proposing to prevent the Supreme Court from nullifying Knesset laws will strengthen Israeli democracy by creating the correct balance between the two bodies. “There is definitely a need for an apparatus that is able to secure Knesset laws and limit the interference of the Judicial Authority in matters of the Legislative Authority. In my view, the bill creates the right balance between the authority.”
