He for that reason denied the Knesset the perfect to participate within the policy-making strategy, brought on a decline within the aid of the elite and most people, inspired partisanship, and endeavored to minimize competitiveness.

And if the government considers this resolution to be legal, what are the arguments in favour of this legality?
