Knesset Passes Law Enforcing’ Coalition Discipline’ in Cabinet

Download PDF for this date

The “coalition discipline” amendment to Israel’s government transition law received its final reading in Israel’s Parliament today and thus became law.

The measure provides that under certain circumstances a Cabinet Minister will be deemed to have resigned automatically if he or his faction in the Cabinet fail to vote in the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, for a Government motion.
