Activists aim to hire ‘lobbyist for public’

A group of political activists led by Zionist Union MK Shelly Yacimovich’s former political adviser Yair Fink began an effort this week to hire a lobbyist who would work for the public.

The "lobbyist for the public" would intend to counteract the team of lobbyists working for so-called tycoons such as gas magnate Yitzhak Teshuva. Fink said he was trying to raise NIS 70,000 to hire the lobbyist through online crowdfunding.

By press time, 164 people contributed NIS 24,720 in 24 hours via the site which can be accessed here.
