When Gilad Erdan was Minister of Communications in the previous government, he successfully moved to have the Knesset agree to the dismantling of the Israel Broadcasting Authority and the establishment of another, more streamlined and more cost efficient broadcasting enterprise in its stead.
When the resolution was adopted eleven months ago, March 2015 was set as the target date for the launch of the new venture. As was widely expected, that changeover did not take place as scheduled, and an extension date was approved. Then there was a second extension till the end of September, and as things stand now, there is little likelihood that any progress will be made said an informed source from within the IBA. In that case according to the IBA, the resolution will go back to the government for discussion.
