"Slomiansky Law" Passes First Reading
Rosh Hodesh Tammuz 5769/June 22, 2009, 21:02 PM
(IsraelNN.com) The Knesset on Monday passed the first reading of a bill called the Slomiansky Law because it would return Nissan Slomianksy to the Knesset, following the anticipated resignation of Science Minister Daniel Hershkowitz. The bill now goes to a committee for fine tuning, ahead of second and third readings.
The law, also known as the Norwegian law after which it is modeled, allows a minister to quit and be replaced in the Knesset by the next in line on the party's list from the elections.
Mustaches? Not Jewish.
