Empowering the Cabinet
According to the draft law, the Cabinet will be authorized, upon recommendation from a committee composed of multiple ministers, to approve the allocation of land parcels from state properties.

These parcels may be allocated to public investment funds or government-owned companies. The aim is to facilitate their operations or utilize them as in-kind shares in investment projects.

The draft law includes provisions designed to promote investment by easing property ownership restrictions. Additionally, it takes into account the rights of specific division parties before the judiciary, including the right to participate in auctions.

Revisions to Judicial Service Systems
The Cabinet also approved an amended system for the Judicial Service System for Sharia judges for the year 2023.

This revision aims to address the financial rights of Sharia judges and employees of the Judges and Sharia Courts Department who work in Jerusalem.

By providing an end-of-service bonus system, this decision ensures that their financial entitlements are met upon completion of their services. It aims to prevent any legal disputes regarding their rights, considering the nature of their work and their status.

Another approval by the Cabinet was for the amended system for the Social Solidarity Fund for Sharia judges and judicial officers in the year 2023.
