Israel's ongoing saga in forming a government- what part should the High Court play, if any?
A petition from some 20 academics and defense experts was filed Sunday with the High Court of Justice against tasking Prime Minister Netanyahu with forming a new government due to his indictment on corruption charges.
The petition was filed a few hours after President Reuven Rivlin announced he would not extend Blue & White chairman Benny Gantz’s mandate to form a government, though he also suggested he would not task Netanyahu with doing so either.
