A few weeks have passed since the formation of the Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu, but it seems that the winds are not blowing as the ships desire.
The new prime minister may face a proposal to prevent him from continuing his duties, due to the intertwined relations and interests between him and Minister Aryeh Deri, whom the Supreme Court in Israel issued a decision disqualifying him from holding ministerial positions after he was convicted of tax evasion crimes, and Netanyahu demanded his dismissal, according to the Israeli Broadcasting Authority (Israel Broadcasting Corporation) It was).
The sources added that the Office of the Attorney General in Israel and the Office of the Legal Adviser to the Government do not rule out a move to disqualify Netanyahu, which would prevent him from continuing in office.
May lead to the fall of the coalition!
While these developments portend a crisis that may lead to the fall of the government coalition in Israel, in the event that the head of the “Shas” party, Aryeh Deri, withdraws from it, while Netanyahu is considering, according to Israeli estimates, appointing Adraee as an alternative prime minister, to circumvent the Israeli court’s decision.
The commission added that the withdrawal of power from Netanyahu may come due to a conflict of interests and Netanyahu’s exploitation of his position to promote judicial reforms that would allow Deri to be appointed as a minister in the government.
In turn, the Likud party is not planning an appropriate solution to the crisis until this moment. Rather, it is estimated that Netanyahu will invite Deri to government meetings as an observer until he overcomes the obstacle of his representation in the government.
Possible civil disobedience to bring down the government
Thousands of protesters in the streets
It is noteworthy that Israel witnessed last week, tens of thousands demonstrated in three major cities, to protest against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plans for judicial reform.
Organizers also accused him of undermining democratic governance weeks after he won re-election.
Netanyahu, who in his sixth term leads a national religious coalition with a strong parliamentary majority, wants to rein in the Supreme Court, in what he described as restoring balance between the three branches of government.
Critics say the proposed reforms will hinder the independence of the judiciary, foster corruption, roll back the rights of minorities, and deny the Israeli court system the credibility to help deal with charges of war crimes committed abroad.
In addition, the Israeli media estimated at the time the number of participants in the protest at about 80,000, in addition to thousands of others in two protests in Jerusalem and Haifa.
