Knesset Speaker: Original Schedule for 3 Bills

Knesset Speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein said, Monday morning, that the coalition intends to keep to the schedule set by the House Committee last week on bills to change Israel's system of governance, increase hareidi participation in the military draft and require a referendum on peace agreements involving concessions on Israeli land, according to the Knesset Website. The announcement came after the opposition announced it would boycott the debate and vote, rejecting Edelstein's proposal to extend the sessions.

Edelstein opened the debate on the governance bill by saying, ”It is okay to argue and say harsh things, but they should be said here, in the plenum.”
