Knesset speaker takes action against no-show ministers

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein took steps to ensure ministers show more respect to the legislative branch Wednesday.

Following complaints from MKs that ministers do not respond to their motions to the agenda in the plenum, Edelstein announced "the current situation certainly will not continue."

Edelstein said he will no longer allow ministers to fill in for one another in the plenum; only the minister relevant to the motion will be allowed to respond.
