Bill on MKs’ Pledge of Allegiance

Tabled by: MKs David Rotem and Robert Iliatov (Yisrael Beitenu) on 1 April 2009
According to this bill, which is a proposed amendment to the Basic Law: The Knesset, all MKs will be required to pledge allegiance to the State of Israel as a Jewish, Zionist, and democratic state, to its laws, and to its symbols. The bill intends to delegitimize and even practically prevent minority groups from partaking in the democratic process. The government decided to not support this private bill.
1 April 2009: Bill is presented in the Knesset.
6 June 2010: The Ministerial Committee on Legislation decided to not support the bill.
Status: Not currently promoted due to lack of coalition agreement.
