Israel's Supreme Court rejects an important part of Netanyahu's controversial judicial reform

Netanyahu has not yet responded to the Supreme Court ruling. His party, Likud, said the Supreme Court's decision conflicts with the people's will for unity, especially in times of war.

Israeli Justice Minister Yariv Levin, one of the driving forces behind judicial reform, accuses the Supreme Court of “usurping all powers” to itself. Levin responded on Telegram: “With this decision, the judges take into their hands all the powers distributed equally among the three authorities in a democratic system.”

He also criticized the Supreme Court for publishing the decision amid the war in Gaza. He added, “This contradicts the unity necessary for the success of our fighters on the front.”

Israeli opposition leader Jair Lapid expressed his support for the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the controversial judicial reform introduced by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “The Supreme Court’s decision comes at the end of a year of struggle that has torn us apart from within and led to the worst catastrophe in our history,” Lapid wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
