Netanyahu seeks ‘active steps’ on Israel judicial overhaul this week

Date:

Jerusalem (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he would pursue “active steps” on a contested judicial overhaul this week after what he described as months of wasteful compromise talks with the political opposition.

“Most of Israeli society understand that there need to be changes in the judicial system,” he told his cabinet. “That’s why we will meet this week and commence with active steps … in a measured way commensurate with the mandate we were given.”
