Committee to Vote on Governance Monday

The Constitution, Law and Justice Committee of the Knesset is scheduled to vote, Monday, on reservations to a bill to change Israel's method of government, ahead of the bill returning to the Knesset for its second and third readings.

The bill calls for a reduction in the number of ministers in the cabinet. A controversial clause would raise the threshold for a party to be represented from two percent to four percent, which could force the Arab parties out of the Knesset.
