Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein appointed MKs to the Knesset Ethics Committee Thursday, over two and a half months after the Knesset was sworn in.
The committee’s chairman is MK Yitzhak Vaknin (Shas), who held the position in the 18th Knesset, and its members are MKs Eyal Ben-Reuven (Zionist Union), Joseph Jabarin (Joint List) and Rachel Azaria (Kulanu). The substitute members are MKs Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) and Yoav Kisch (Likud).
The Ethics Committee holds its meetings behind closed doors, and all ethics complaints are kept confidential until the committee makes a decision on the matter. In order to maintain confidentiality, complaints that are released to the press by MKs who submitted them are disregarded.
