No Order to Name Foreign Affairs, Defense C'tee Chair

The Supreme Court rejected, Tuesday morning, a petition by the Movement for Quality Government for an order to name a chairman for the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

In rendering the ruling, Justice Noam Solberg said, "Despite the problematic situation described in the petitions - an improper situation which damages the capacity of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense to properly fulfill its duties - there is no place for an injunction, due to the special status of the Knesset and because, at the moment, there is no substantial violation of the constitutional regime."
