Critical Steps Toward Israel’s Electoral Reform

Dear Friends,

The Citizens’ Empowerment Center in Israel (CECI) and “The CECI Forum for Government Stability” are heating up their efforts and proactively urging Knesset legislation to support alternatives to the current system. Recently, Kadima and Israel Beitainu Parties achieved a partial agreement which will serve as a basis for recruiting parliamentary support to remedy the problem of government instability in Israel.

This agreement was made on March 10, 2010 at the home of Mr. Michael Strauss in cooperation with representatives of the Coalition, the Opposition, and members of “The CECI Forum for Government Stability”. In the coming weeks, additional meetings will be conducted with representatives from other parties in order to expand the group’s support.

On March 16, 2010, a gathering was held at the home of Professor Izzy Borovich with the participation of Israeli Ministers, MKs, and Forum members. At this event, many people voiced their strong opinions about the importance of the Forum’s initiatives, pledging their full support to ensure electoral reform.

Now as the Knesset resumes its work after the Passover holidays, we’re increasing our efforts across party lines to secure the greatest number of advocates for this crucial step in Israel’s political history.

Warmest regards,

Dora Kadisha

Executive Director
