Ministers voted on Sunday in favour of a controversial proposal to anchor in law Israel's status as the national homeland of the Jewish people, at the expense of its democratic character.
Following a stormy meeting, the cabinet voted 14 to six in favour of the proposal, with ministers from the two centrist parties -- HaTnuah led by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Yesh Atid of Finance Minister Yair Lapid -- voting against, media reports said.
