In light of the Supreme Court's decision not to postpone the appeal regarding The Incapacity Law, the Movement for Quality Government, who filed the appeal against the law, welcomes the decision. They stated, "Unfortunately, over the past year, personal legislation has become a routine in the Knesset - repeatedly amending and fixing basic laws to suit the momentary needs of those accused of criminal and disciplinary offenses." They further added, "We commend the esteemed court's decision to use its limited powers to preserve the principles of democratic play in Israel while also safeguarding the dignity of the Knesset, which has long ceased to preserve its own dignity."

As previously reported, the Supreme Court has decided not to postpone the appeal. The judges issued an order to the government requiring an explanation as to why the law cannot take effect from only the next Knesset. Additionally, it was decided that the next hearing on the law will be held in an expanded panel of 11 judges.

Lieberman: "A personal law that deserves to be invalidated"

Even in the Yisrael Beiteinu party, which took part in the appeal, they are applauding the decision. The Chairman of Yisrael Beiteinu, Avigdor Lieberman, tweeted on his Twitter page: "I commend the Supreme Court's decision to issue an order and ask the Prime Minister to explain why the implementation of The Incapacity Law should not be postponed to the next Knesset, as requested by Yisrael Beiteinu in the appeal we filed. The Incapacity Law is a personal law that should be either revoked or at least take effect only from the next Knesset."

Lieberman further added: "Netanyahu's insistence on immediate implementation, alongside the haste with which the law was enacted, makes it clear to anyone who had doubts that this is a law tailored to Netanyahu's needs and interests. I hope that the expanded composition of the Supreme Court will ultimately accept our appeal and prevent the transformation of basic laws into personal instruments manipulated according to Netanyahu's personal needs."
