The decision was made after the government ministries failed to eliminate or “convert” all the laws based on the emergency order.
A joint panel of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee approved a cabinet resolution on the issue from last month.

The joint committee will meet again in January to see if any more progress has been made. “It’s about time we matured a bit as a state,” Dichter said.
