"Governance Bill Unconstitutional"

Knesset Legal Advisor Eyal Yinon explained his views of the governance bill approved Monday by the Legislation Committee, "The new governance bill basically removes the option of no-confidence motions from the Knesset agenda. Previously, even a minority could propose such a motion, and attempt to democratically control the government, as the sovereign Knesset should. Requiring 61 MKs for such a motion is unconstitutional and anti-democratic."
