Shaked: We're in Process of Voting; Supreme Court Ruling Gratuitous


MK Ayelet Shaked said this morning (Wednesday) that the Supreme Court's ruling to suspend funds to Yeshiva (academy of advanced Torah studies) students who have not reported to the draft was " quite unnecessary, as we are in the process of voting at this time."

In an interview with Galei Tzahal (Army Radio) Shaked said, "On Monday, coalition leadership announced its decision to move the second and third readings of the new conscription law to the second week in March," adding, "this does not mean that the next payment to the Yeshivot will take place in March, and by then the law will be passed."
