Knesset committee chairmans to be officially named next week

The completion of the formation of the government with the appointment of new Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Monday enabled the Likud to start dealing with who will head the Knesset’s committees and allow them to start functioning.

Coalition chairman Tzachi Hanegbi, who will head the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said the chairmen of the committees would be named next Monday.

Battles will be held in the Zionist Union over the Knesset Economics Committee, though it is possible that MKs Eitan Cabel and Shelly Yacimovich will compromise and rotate as head of the committee.
