Justice Minister Yariv Levin is attacking the judges of the High Court of Justice, this is in preparation for the hearing that is expected to take place later today (Thursday) in the Supreme Court on the petitions against the "Incapacity Law".
Justice Minister Levin harshly attacked the very debate and the conduct of the judicial system on the issue: "The debate that is taking place today in court is practically a debate on the annulment of the election results. No other washed-up name will hide this simple truth."
Beyond that, Levin explained the meaning of canceling the incapacity law or delaying its entry into force until the next Knesset and said: "The meaning of postponing the applicability of the incapacity law is that an official, no matter how senior, will be able to take for himself powers that were never given to him and discuss the illusory possibility in itself of removing a prime minister to Israel, and all of this in complete opposition to the election results. The petitioners are actually seeking to oust Prime Minister Netanyahu, in order to put an end to right-wing rule. They failed at the ballot box, and now seek to cancel the election results."
The Minister of Justice presented the consequences for him of such a move and explained that the acceptance of the petitions, even partially by the court, would be harmful to Israeli democracy: "The result of this is that Israel will no longer have democracy, but the rule of people who put themselves above the people. Above the voter's decision at the ballot box."
In addition, Levin concluded his remarks with an attack on the High Court of Justice and stated: "The court again seeks to interfere with a complete lack of authority in a fundamental law. He once again put himself above the government, above the Knesset, above the people and above the law. This is not democracy."
