Deri denies he’ll invoke legal measure to advance gas deal

Economy Minister Arye Deri denied claims on Tuesday that he would sign off on a legal measure to circumvent the antitrust commissioner’s authority, enabling the advancement of a controversial gas compromise outline.

Following Antitrust Commissioner David Gilo’s December decision to review whether the market dominance of the Delek Group and Noble Energy constituted a restrictive agreement, six months of negotiations ensued among government officials and the companies.

While the parties eventually agreed to the terms of a recently published compromise outline, Gilo made clear that he would not grant his support to the document in question. He went on to announce his pending resignation.
