In the context of ongoing discussions and reports regarding compromise talks at the President's residence regarding judicial legislation, the leader of the Labor Party, Merav Michaeli, expresses strong opposition to the process.

Michaeli states, "Just like in the first round of 'the talking,' Netanyahu is trying to buy legitimacy for himself and time to implement the damage that this coalition is causing to the State of Israel."

"We realize that what interests the settlers is to sacrifice Israel in exchange for Judea and Samaria, that the ultra-Orthodox only want to exempt their own people from conscription (even against their will), and that Netanyahu simply wants to escape from the legal process. We must not give him legitimacy again and time to continue the destruction of the house."

"To seize the rare opportunity."

As reported in recent days, the President's residence has been engaged in negotiations with representatives from both the coalition and the opposition in an effort to reach a consensus on the continuation of judicial reform.

During his visit to Austria, the President of Israel, Isaac Herzog, referred to the discussions between the coalition and the opposition regarding judicial reform. He stated, "Reality requires reaching an agreement."

In his speech, the President said that "there are moments in crises of this type, when leadership is required to take advantage of the rare opportunity to reach out and reach agreements, this is one of those moments. We are before Rosh HaShanah, before the Tishrei holidays, for nine months we have been in a deep crisis that dramatically affects our lives, affects our security, significantly affects our security, affects our economy, affects our society, affects our human behavior. Enough, enough."

"It is necessary to come together for broad understandings, it is possible." The president added, "This does not concern a schedule, neither of a court nor of the Knesset - it concerns reality, and reality requires making a huge effort to reach agreements."
