AG: Deri, Galant appointments are legal, but troubling

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein has told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in two extensive legal opinions that there is no legal bar to either Shas party leader Aryeh Deri or Kulanu No. 2 Yoav Galant serving as ministers in the incoming government, while noting that both appointments “raise difficulties.”

Deri is due to be appointed the new coalition’s next economy minister and Galant is due to be appointed the next housing minister.

Groups have already petitioned to the High Court of Justice to block both appointments due to each politicians problematic past.
