"Netanyahu told the coalition that he had decided to suspend the reform," KAN reported.
According to the company, Justice Minister Yariv Levin also realized that the government had no other choice.
According to him, it remains to convince the Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir, who "threatens to dissolve the government because of this."
Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog earlier appealed to the government to stop the process of adopting judicial reform in the country amid protests. He noted that due to the discontent of the protesters, security, the economy and society were under threat.
Former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett also called on representatives of the current government to postpone judicial reform and move on to negotiations.
Amid the protests, Israel's National Union closed Ben Gurion Airport, and the doctors' union announced the suspension of the health care system from Tuesday, March 28, until the announcement of the cancellation of the judicial reform.
The reform involves limiting the powers of the Supreme Court and giving the executive branch control over the selection of judges.
