Bayit Yehudi: We Must Vet All Legislation on Religious Matters

Any government decisions or Knesset legislation having to do with religion will have to be vetted by the Bayit Yehudi party, MKs decided in a meeting Monday. If they are not, the MKs will veto those decisions and automatically vote against proposed laws based on them, Bayit Yehudi MKs decided in their weekly faction meeting. That rule will apply even if the matter in question is one the party would agree with. “We will not accept any situation in which laws are to be voted on without discussing it with the appropriate ministry,” Bayit Yehudi said in a statement.
