Two bills – one to repeal the 2005 Disengagement and the other to legalize West Bank outposts – can come before the Knesset for a preliminary vote as early as Wednesday. Both bills have enough support to pass a preliminary reading, but the victory is likely to be an emotional victory for the Israeli Right and the settlement moment, because an initial plenum vote might not lead to their final approval.

The Right is in a race against time to advance its agenda before the Knesset falls or a new government is formed that contains the Yesh Atid Party headed by Yair Lapid. Their drive received a boost Tuesday night when the Knesset Arrangements Committee agreed Tuesday evening in a 19-13 votes to fast track both the private members bill, by waiving its 45-waiting period. Among those who supported the legislation were members of the Yamina Party. Once a preliminary vote is held, the legislation must pass three readings and be sent to committees for approval.
