The committee discusses the restriction of the demonstrations – Channel 20


After no agreement was reached last Friday regarding the outline of the demonstrations during the closure, today (Tuesday) the discussion in the Constitution Committee will resume in an attempt to finally approve the amendment to the Corona Law, so that the demonstrations can be restricted.

Watch the committee discussion:

It appears that the demonstrations will not be completely restricted except to a range of only one kilometer from the place of residence, and their existence in capsules only.

As mentioned, during Friday, before the time of the closure, the Constitution Committee discussed the closure regulations decided on by the government, but this did not mature into a vote due to the many reservations they submitted to the opposition. The committee’s chairman, MK Yaakov Asher, closed the debate without a vote. As a result, the restriction of the demonstrations was not possible and already last Saturday evening a demonstration took place despite the closure in front of the Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem.

Even before the end of the discussion in the Constitution Committee, the Likud tried to pass an emergency regulation in the government that would allow the demonstrations to be restricted immediately, but their blue-and-white coalition partner opposed the move.

“In any case, the law could not have passed in the Knesset with 4,000 reservations from the opposition, which is being conducted irresponsibly in a national emergency,” the Likud statement said last Friday. “This is due to the opposition’s obsession with allowing the demonstration festival.”

“Since the enactment of the law cannot be completed by Tuesday, the Likud has proposed emergency regulations for a few days to prevent mass demonstrations that will cause the public not to respect the closure and thus endanger many lives,” the Likud statement said. “In this national emergency, there is no room for petty politics,” they attacked, “although the demonstrations only help the Likud politically, they endanger public health and therefore should be stopped.”

MK Ophir Sofer attacked the demonstrations. A writer tweeted on his Twitter account: “In choosing between stopping demonstrations and losing a human life, I will vote today against losing a human life.”

The Minister of Finance, Israel Katz, said today that “for me, as someone who is a key factor in the economic aspect of this whole issue and in the entire crisis, there is no doubt that the issue of demonstrations has become a sign and a symbol of breaking the law. this is the situation”.
