Ministerial Committee to Discuss 'Zoabi's Law'


The Ministerial Legislative Committee will hold a hearing on a special initiative from Jewish Home MK Ayelet Shaked Sunday, nicknamed "Zoabi's Law."

"Zoabi's Law," if passed, will amend existing laws allowing the Knesset's Central Elections Committee to reject the re-application of current MKs for the next Knesset term if they are found guilty of incitement or supporting known terrorist groups. The amendment would also allow the Knesset to boot current MKs over incitement - not only before the next elections.
