(A bill requiring a majority vote of 80 out of 120 MKs to endorse any amendment to the Basic Law “Jerusalem the Capital of Israel”  Attached is the original text of the Law. In light of the judicial advisors’ opposition to the bill, the government stipulated the required endorsement by means of a provision, which repeals the law by an ordinary majority vote of MKs.)

 

Initiator: Shuli Mualem from the Jewish Home Party as well as 22 MKs
Bill No. 4346/20/F

On Wednesday, 19 July 2017, the Knesset Plenum endorsed in a preliminary reading a bill, proposed by MK Shuli Mualem from the Jewish Home Party and 22 members of all ruling coalition parties. The bill provides that any amendment to the Basic Law “Jerusalem the Capital of Israel” requires a majority vote of 80 out of 120 MKs. In other words, the bill discards the two-third majority in an ordinary session of the Knesset.
