Following enormous pressure by the Charedi parties, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to speed up the drafting process of the Conscription Law in order to align with the agreed-upon deadline for submission.
Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman and Finance Committee Chairman MK Moshe Gafni submitted a letter to Netanyahu asking the Prime Minister to speed up the drafting process of the law after receiving instruction to do so from the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah.
The draft was supposed to have been finished no later than four weeks after the opening of the summer session in the Knesset. Since that deadline has already passed, the Charedi MKs asked Netanyahu to speed things up.
Lieberman said on Monday that the draft was finishing its final modifications and would then be presented to the IDF Chief of Staff for ratification and then to Lieberman himself before it comes back to the Knesset.
