He also added that “on 01.03 I demanded to hold elections for the committee for the appointment of judges according to the existing law. The coalition was alarmed and wanted to amend the bylaws in order to postpone the elections. Today is the last day to amend the bylaws, and according to the publications the coalition surrendered and the elections this time will not be postponed and will be held in accordance with the existing law.” .
A short time later, Secretary of State Yossi Fox attacked him, alleging unfairness: “And I, to Tommy, thought that the representatives of your faction in the talks at the President’s House come with a real desire to reach an agreement on changing the composition of the committee for the selection of judges. Not to ‘beat the coalition,’ and here the sting came out of Rest assured that in the absence of agreements in the negotiations, two coalition representatives will be elected to the committee and the committee will actually convene only if the Minister of Justice so desires.”
