Knesset looking into Presidential Budget

Media reports early this year indicated that Presidential expenses during the seven year term of office of President Shimon Peres had sky-rocketed, and had more than doubled.

This was confirmed in a report by the Knesset Research and Information Center which had been ordered by Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky (Bayit Yehudi).

“The research showed us something amazing, that from the moment the previous president [Peres] entered the position in 2007, Beit Hanassi’s (President’s Residence) expenses jumped and doubled,” Slomiansky said.
