Knesset votes down probe of gas plan

The Knesset will not form a commission of inquiry in to the way the government made decisions related to natural gas, voting down Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg’s proposal 37-55 Wednesday.

Zandberg called the deal undemocratic, both because the Antitrust Commissioner is being stripped of his authority to oppose it and because the Knesset will not be able to change it for the next decade.

"The wealthy can smile with their cigars," she said. "We need a parliamentary commission of inquiry so that we can have a transparent discussion about the gas in the Knesset."
