Cabel: Government must bring gas deal to Knesset

The government cannot finalize its natural gas deal behind closed doors in the Security Cabinet, Knesset Economics Committee chairman Eitan Cabel wrote in a letter to Economy Minister Arye Deri Sunday, demanding that the latter appear before the panel.

Cabel’s letter came in light of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reported plan to hold a Security Cabinet meeting on the gas deal on Monday, in which he would revoke Antitrust Commissioner David Gilo’s authority when it comes to ensuring there is no gas monopoly, and giving it to Deri.

"If the government thinks it can approve the gas deal far from the public’s eye in a closed cabinet meeting, it is mistaken," the Zionist Union MK stated.
