Yesh Atid MKs disrupt transparency meeting

Yesh Atid lawmakers interrupted a meeting of the Knesset’s special committee on transparency Wednesday by accusing the Zionist Union of having a poor record on the issue.

The meeting began with speeches by Zionist Union leaders Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni and the head of the committee, the party’s MK Stav Shaffir, boasting about their transparency. But Yesh Atid MKs Haim Jelin, Meir Cohen and Yael German heckled and stopped the meeting.

The MKs called upon Shaffir to reveal an agreement the Labor Party (the main component of the Zionist Union) signed with Bayit Yehudi in the Zionist Congress recently that gave the right-wing party authority over the World Zionist Organization’s settlement division.
