Tuesday’s session lasted about two hours and fifteen minutes, including a short recess in the middle. No bills were discussed. Two motions were discussed, but neither was voted on. The short day had a low attendance with a plenum that never reached double digits at any time during the day. In fact, only one-third of the MKs were in the building when Speaker Rivlin opened the session.
