Edelstein ‘going crazy’ over Knesset’s inactivity

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein demanded that party leaders assign MKs to legislative committees as soon as possible Thursday, so the 20th Knesset can start working in earnest.

Nearly two months after the 20th Knesset was inaugurated, it remains mostly idle, because none of the committees, which prepare legislation for plenum votes and oversee government activity, have chairpeople or even members yet.

"Even though it has been two weeks since the government was sworn in and even though the factions were already asked to submit their members’ assignments to Knesset committees, some of the factions have yet to do so," Edelstein wrote in a letter to the chairpeople of all the Knesset’s factions.
