Likud warns against bringing Israeli cabinet down

Israel’s Likud party is warning the smaller parties in the coalition against bringing down the Israeli cabinet over the actions of the Supreme Court.
The warning came after recent polls showed the right-wing camp led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at an all-time low, Maariv reported.
Likud party officials said that they opposed acts to dissolve the cabinet  in the event that the Supreme Court intervenes in recent legislation, reducing the court’s ability to apply the ‘Reasonableness Standard’ despite the law’s quasi-constitutional status as a Basic Law.
“Holding elections today is the surest way to bring about the collective suicide of the right-wing camp. Today, when the right-wing camp is at its lowest ebb, the polls are the strongest glue holding the ruling coalition together,” the sources said.
According to the sources, “the issue of [judicial] reform should be put aside, and if it is to be promoted, then it should be done only by consensus.”
“Only after we bring success in the fields of the economy and the personal security of the citizens, and when we succeed in improving the situation in Arab society, only then is it possible to think about elections. Now, we don’t have public credit. It’s all been wasted on the reform.”
