Netanyahu rips Israel's Supreme Court as 'most activist court on the planet,' doubles down on judicial reforms
Benjamin Netanyahu unveils judicial reform to ‘bring back Israel’
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu weighs in on reforming Israel’s judiciary system on ”Kudlow.’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pushed back against critics of his proposed judicial reforms on Wednesday, arguing that his initiative to correct the "imbalance" between Israel's branches of government will only bolster the country's economy as protests break out across the Jewish state.
In an interview on FOX Business Network, "Kudlow" host Larry Kudlow told viewers that the judicial overhaul proposed by Netanyahu's ring-wing government could "save Israel’s economy and its national security."
Critics say the reforms, which would limit the Supreme Court's power to overturn Knesset laws and assert stronger control over judicial appointments, will have negative ramifications on an economy still reeling from the pandemic. But Netanyahu told "Kudlow" he is confident that balancing what he described as the "most activist judicial court on the planet" will further promote Israeli innovation and could increase the country's annual GDP.
