Knesset to introduce UK-style Prime Minister’s Questions

The Knesset will have a Prime Minister’s Questions hour once per session, the Knesset House Committee decided Monday.

The new format is similar to the weekly questioning UK prime ministers undergo in the House of Commons, however, the Israeli prime minister will only have to answer such questions once once per year.

In other weeks, another minister will answer questions, and unlike in the existing parliamentary questions system, he or she will not know what the questions will be in advance.
