Ratification of the Law on the Judicial Reform: An End to the Challenges or a Beginning to New Protests?

Ratification of the Law on the Judicial Reform: An End to the Challenges or a Beginning to New Protests?

 The Knesset of the Zionist regime has finally adopted the law on judicial reforms after 7 months of dragging between the ruling cabinet led by Netanyahu and the opposition leaders ,Lapid and Benny Gantz.

According to the Negaheno report, based on the adoption made by the Knesset (parliament of the Zionist regime) the supreme court will no longer have a monitoring role over the functioning of the cabinet and Knesset.

The constitution plays a pivotal role in different countries and it works as a criterion for different powers including the judiciary, executive and the legislative powers therefore, the individuals and the parties who assume power are compelled to work within the framework of the constitution.

But Israel has no constitution and that is why the supreme court holds the task of monitoring the functioning of the powers and organizations. In the same way, the judicial power assigns a single individual as the judicial advisor in every administration in order to monitor the performance of the organizations.

In the quadruple corruption case of Benjamin Netanyhu, the report of the judicial advisor located in the office of the prime minister made these cases enter the follow up phase in the court. With this approach the prime minister will obtain a big bonus resulting from these changes in the judicial power.

Following the cancellation of the supervisory power of the supreme court of the Zionist regime which is called “non grata” (meaning if a law or a legal plan that is reviewed by the court fails to be adopted it will no longer be implementable even if it is already approved by Knesset or the cabinet) this in fact would transform the political structure in Israel from a law- oriented structure into an authoritarian structure. In other words, the ruling party that compose the cabinet can adopt and legalize all the plans introduced by the party or group in the Knesset.

This is exactly what the opposition group of the current cabinet in Israel call a “Judicial Coup” and are pressing hard to stop it in order to avoid the current cabinet prioritize its coalition goals over the general goals of the regime.

For its legalization, it requires the signature of the president of the Zionist regime in order to change into a law. That is why, Yair Lapid, the opposition leader, announced today that it will complain to the supreme court.

Therefore, this enactment has a long way to go before it is legalized. Hence, we should still wait for the challenges to intensify in the Zionist regime. The Western governments have also seriously criticized the current cabinet and the US president, Joe Biden has also called both sides to come to a joint consensus. The opposition groups have called the West in particular the US to take more actions in this issue.

On the other hand, Isaac Hertzog, the president of the regime shows no interest in joining the current cabinet. His dismissal also requires two third of the votes by Knesset and due to the 64seats of the ruling coalition this seems quite unlikely.
