Israel’s Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, announced that he will undergo a pacemaker procedure on Sunday morning, with plans to return to his duties in time for Monday’s crucial vote on the government’s proposed judicial reforms.
The bill has already sparked widespread protests, with thousands of Israelis marching in Jerusalem to voice their opposition.
The contentious legislation seeks to limit the Supreme Court’s authority to nullify “unreasonable” government decisions. Critics fear that such measures will pave the way for corruption and mismanagement within the government.
Despite concerns about his health, Netanyahu remains determined to participate in the legislative process. His pacemaker fitting will not deter him from fulfilling his responsibilities in the ongoing political landscape.
The prime minister’s resolve to be actively involved in the vote comes amid divided public opinion on the judicial overhaul. The outcome of the vote could significantly impact the balance of power within Israel’s governmental structure.
As the nation watches closely, both supporters and opponents of the bill anticipate the implications that the decision will hold for the future of the country’s judiciary system.
