Representing the New Netanyahu government coalition, Justice Minister Yariv Levin published proposed changes to overhaul Israel’s judiciary. They were rooted in the belief that the Israeli judiciary wielded too much power. There were four elements for the suggested judiciary changes:  (1) allowing the Knesset to override Supreme court decisions; (2) changing the composition of the Judicial Selection Committee so that government could control the appointments of judges; (3) cancelling the standard used by the Supreme Court to intervene and overturn executive orders; and (4) allowing directors general of each ministry to appoint ministerial legal advisors whose rulings might not be binding on a ministry. The Israeli public demonstrated in massive numbers against the proposed changes that were seen as creating a government, cabinet, and parliamentary autocracy, with no longer the Supreme Court as a balance to those branches of government. Comments and criticism poured in from across the world about the proposed changes.
