Ohana: We will establish a new court to replace the High Court

Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana continued his attack against the Supreme Court and said that he will work to establish a Constitutional Court to replace the High Court: "There are a variety of legislative ideas that the Knesset will bring to deal with this trampling."

A week after his harsh speech against the judges of the High Court, Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana this morning (Thursday) referred to the coalition's possible plan if the court rejects the law to reduce the The reasonableness clause. In an interview with "Yedioth Ahronoth" Ohana said that he would advance the establishment of a constitutional court which would actually replace the High Court of Justice - but would not harm the institution of the Supreme Court.

"There are a variety of ideas for legislative proposals that the Knesset will bring to deal with this trampling, including the establishment of a court for constitutional issues," Ohana said. "There is no advantage for lawyers in a court for constitutional issues, and public representatives from a variety of fields will also be able to sit in it. This is one of many proposals that will surely be discussed if necessary."

He also turned to the Supreme Court once more and called not to interfere in the Knesset's legislation: "I hope that the court will understand the limitations of its own power and avoid this crisis. There is no authority in a democracy that is 'all-powerful', and the Knesset and the government understand this very well. I hope that the court also understands this ".
