Knesset plenum
Knesset plenum Olivier Fitoussi/Flash90

The Knesset plans to hold a preliminary vote on the Norwegian Law on Wednesday, to allow ministers to step down as Knesset members, allowing other members of their parties to replace them in the Knesset.

The law will be of the most help to Blue and White, the members of which are almost all either ministers or deputy ministers, to increase its influence in the government.

If the law passes, five Blue and White ministers and seven ministers from the Likud, Shas, and UTJ, would step down as MKs.

If Blue and White members utilize the Norwegian Law, additional members of the opposition's Yesh Atid-Telem party, which split from Blue and White after the elections, would become MKs.

According to Yediot Aharonot, Blue and White is attempting to convince Telem's Michal Kotler-Wansh and Yesh Atid's Tehila Friedman to join Blue and White and become part of the coalition, where they would receive senior positions upon becoming MKs.
