The MKs in the Constitution Committee removed the reservations, and the law passed to the plenum • The “state of emergency” that restricts demonstrations and prayers will take effect at midnight subject to Knesset approval • It will be possible to restrict a person’s exit to a demonstration up to 1000 meters
The law will enter into force with its approval tonight in the Knesset plenum – and at that time a statutory declaration of a “special state of emergency” will come into force, as proposed in the law.
Before the vote, opposition leader MK Yair Lapid said: “I came to find out if I am still allowed to speak in the plenum, because this is the next step. We will be told that because of the corona – I am not allowed to stand and speak here on behalf of the opposition. I ask my friends blue and white – What will happen if you tell Netanyahu that you are not ready and this is contrary to the agreements signed? What will happen to you if you say no? What are you afraid of? The whole issue of demonstrations is meant to distract from the terrible failure to deal with Corona.
We will neutralize the Knesset of Israel all night to make sure that no one can stand outside in capsules of 20 people with masks. “
The government will be able to declare a “special emergency due to the corona virus” for a week, if it is convinced of the widespread spread of the virus that causes serious harm to public health and provided the closure regulations are in force.
The government can extend the declaration for additional periods of one week to a total of 21 days, and it will be brought to the Constitution Committee next to the decision on the extension, and the committee will be able to cancel the declaration retrospectively.
The government, with the approval of the Constitution Committee, can extend the declaration for additional periods of two weeks as long as the closure regulations are in force.
The government complied with the request of the committee’s chairman, MK Yaakov Asher, according to which even in a “special state of emergency” to be declared during a closure, it will not be possible to completely prevent prayers, demonstrations or religious ceremonies, but restrictions may be imposed. .
Also in a “special emergency situation”, it will be possible to restrict a person’s departure for a demonstration to the distance allowed to leave the place of residence, which in the current regulations is 1000 meters.
Nine MKs supported the law in the Knesset’s Constitution Committee: MKs Yaakov Asher and MKs Tali Ploskov, Amit Halevi, Uzi Dayan, Eitan Ginzburg, Einav Kabala, Michal Wensch, Tehla Friedman, and Michael Malkieli.
6 MKs opposed: Yoav Saglowitz, Meir Cohen Mish Atid Telam, Osama Saadi, and Lid Taha from the joint list, Eli Avidar from Yisrael Beiteinu, and Nitzan Horowitz from Meretz.
During the discussion, a heated confrontation took place between MK Shlomo Qara of the Likud and MK Eli Avidar of Yisrael Beiteinu.
“The law was not passed, but protesters were arrested violently and illegally outside the Knesset,” said MK Avidar.
MK Qarai responded: “I would stop you too.”
Avidar replied: “You are a member of a crime family, little Pushtek. You’re not even a toy criminal. Is it wearing a kippah? Your family is ashamed of you. ”
Later, when MK Qarai expressed reservations, Avidar added: “Join the anarchists of Jewish power, you are an anarchist clown.”
