‘Many of those that didn’t vote for us who knew and agreed that it was essential to make basic corrections within the judicial system,’ says Netanyahu
During Sunday’s cupboard assembly, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the Saturday night time protests, evaluating them to the November elections.
“Two months ago, there was a huge demonstration in Israel, the mother of all demonstrations,” Netanyahu acknowledged. “Millions of people took to the streets to vote in the elections. One of the main issues they voted for is reforming the judicial system.”
On Saturday night time, an estimated 80,000 in the central city of Tel Aviv and plenty of 1000’s in Jerusalem turned out to protest in opposition to reforms to Israel’s judicial system proposed by a minister. The November 2022 elections – the fifth since 2019 – noticed among the highest voter turnout in current Israeli historical past. The outcome noticed the Netanyahu bloc outpoll the so-called “anti-Netanyahu” bloc by roughly 30,000 votes.
“In recent days, I have heard an attempt to claim that the public did not know what they were voting for,” Netanyahu continued. “So here’s a quote, one in all many, from my associates from the election marketing campaign and me: ‘We will make the mandatory corrections within the judicial system out of consideration and accountability. We are going to fix the system, reserve it and never destroy it.'”
“My friends and I, many of whom are here around the table, have said this countless times, and millions of citizens who voted for the right-wing camp knew about the intention to reform the judicial system comprehensively,” the prime minister added. “More than that, they demanded it from us. Anyone who was at our election rallies, in the city centers, in the neighborhoods, we heard the voice rising from the crowd.”
“And many of those who did not vote for us who knew and agreed that it was necessary to make fundamental corrections in the judicial system,” he added. Netanyahu then famous that when different governments – each on the best and the left – referred to as to reform the judicial system, nobody referred to as it the “end of democracy.”
