Report: Knesset Legal Advisor Against Ne'eman Proposal

Knesset Legal Advisor Eyal Ynon is opposed to Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman's memorandum, proposing a law that would allow the Knesset to override a Supreme Court veto, according to a Sunday evening report by Channel 2 television. Ynon explained that the law will only intensify tensions between the two branches of government rather than alleviate it. He also said the majority of 65 to override the court was quite small.

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, who supports the proposal, is scheduled to meet soon with Supreme Court President Asher Grunis. Rivlin announced, Sunday, that he intends to advance the memorandum during the Knesset's summer session, claiming it is necessary and inevitable.
