With the Israeli government's insistence on moving forward with its project aimed at reducing the powers of the Supreme Court and ignoring the widespread public rejection of it, the judiciary leaked to the media news about the intention of the government's judicial advisor, Ghali Bharav Mayara, to start deliberations with officials in the Ministry of Justice and the Public Prosecution, about what It was called "a contradiction of interests between the policy pursued by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The envisioned rulings of the judiciary may force Netanyahu to step down from office by announcing his inability to carry out his duties."

Judicial sources said that these deliberations will begin next week, and perhaps this week.

According to Haaretz, an Israeli daily newspaper, “the judicial advisor is still far from announcing that Netanyahu is unable to carry out the duties of his position.”

But she stressed that these deliberations are intended for consultation only at this stage because there is a solid basis for believing that he entered into a process of severe conflict of interest.
