Once the dispute is resolved: The Electricity Act will go up for discussion ahead of further reading

The Interior Committee, chaired by a Member of the Knesset Walid Taha Discuss tomorrow (Monday) the preparation of the Electricity Law for a second and third reading, after the disputes between MK Taha and the Minister of the Interior have been resolved Ayelet Shaked.

In the previous debate, the bill was approved on first reading by a majority of 61 supporters against 48 opponents. According to the proposal, the Minister of the Interior may stipulate in an order that it will be possible to connect a residential building located in a certain area, defined in the order, to electricity, water or telephone, even without the existence of a building permit and completion certificate for that building.

The conditions for issuing the order, as set out, are: If a plan was submitted by one of the parties listed in the bill, the structure for which the connection was requested was erected by January 1, 2018 and no construction was added after that date.

In addition, it was proposed to set a timetable for consultation with the district committee and for the decision of the Minister of the Interior, as well as to determine the conditions required to meet those who apply to connect these structures such as an undertaking to apply for a permit within the time limit in the bill.

In this debate, opponents of the opposition bill, including MKs Dudi Amsalem and Winon Azoulay, confronted the committee chairman, to which he replied: “The era of oppressing the citizen because they are not planning for him is over. We give the Arab citizen the basic right, which feels Yinon and Amsalem, the citizen will receive electricity if his approval meets the three criteria. And everyone who is upset about it – you are worthless! “
