The MK Yoav Kish is promoting a bill under which the Supreme court will be elected at the plenary session of the Knesset as the elected President of the state or the state Comptroller.
According to keisha, the purpose of this bill is to change the existing situation when the head of the Supreme court shall be appointed by seniority, and not be selected by any criteria.
The Minister of tourism Yariv Levin, coordinating joint work of the Knesset and the government, said he supported the idea of the bill. Justice Minister Ayelet shaked does not Express its attitude to the bill.
The initiative of the bill came on the background of the conflict between the justice Minister and head of the Supreme court Miriam Naor on the appointment of the new head of the Supreme court.
May 29, the Supreme court President Miriam Naor warned the justice Minister Ayelet shaked that will be forced to appeal to the high court, if there is a pending meeting of the Commission by appointment of the court.
In a letter sent shaked, Miriam Naor recalled that the Minister of justice may exercise its powers only in extreme cases and when there are serious grounds for doing so.
According to Miriam Naor, the postponement of the Commission meeting, which must be announced that judge Esther Hayut will be the next President of the Supreme court, became unresolved differences over the appointment of two judges of the Supreme court. Naor shaked warned that her actions are harming society and the judicial system.
