Israel’s judicial overhaul explained
(CNN) For months, hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been taking to the streets across the country to protest far-reaching changes to Israel’s legal system some say threaten the country’s democratic foundations.At its core, the judicial overhaul would give the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, and therefore the parties in power, more control over Israel’s judiciary.From how judges are selected, to what laws the Supreme Court can rule on, to even giving parliament power to overturn Supreme Court decisions, the changes would be the most significant shakeups to Israel’s judiciary since its founding in 1948.The proposed reforms do not come out of nowhere.Figures from across the political spectrum have in the past called for changes to Israel’s judiciary.Israel has no written constitution, only a set of quasi-constitutional basic laws, making the Supreme Court even more powerful. But Israel also has no check on the power of the Knesset other than the Supreme Court.What are the changes and what are the reasons behind them?The judicial overhaul is a package of bills, all of which need to pass three votes in the Knesset before they become law.One of the most important elements for the Netanyahu government is the bill that changes the makeup of the nine-member committee that selects judges, in order to give the government a majority of the seats on the committee.Netanyahu and his supporters argue that the Supreme Court has become an insular, elitist group that does not represent the Israeli people.
