The Edelstein ruling shook the foundations of Israeli democracy. For the first time in the country’s history, the Israeli Supreme Court intervened in the legislature’s internal affairs by scheduling a date for a vote, thus shaping the vote’s outcome and creating an irrevocable political reality. Never before had a Knesset Speaker resigned in protest while refusing to uphold a court order. Every governmental branch viewed the other as damaging the core principles of democracy. The Court opined that the Knesset Speaker’s refusal to hold a vote for electing a new Knesset Speaker, even though the majority of the Knesset Members called for it, constituted a grave violation of parliamentary affairs. The Knesset Speaker, in turn, adhered to his stance that he was acting with integrity and preventing a second Altalena Affair by resigning. Who is right? With whom is the law?
