Zionist Union’s Shmuli named most ‘social’ MK

MK Itzik Shmuli (Zionist Union) has topped the “Social Index,” a ranking of lawmakers by the Social Guard, a Knesset watchdog NGO on socioeconomic issues.

The ranking is based on how many times MKs voted for bills the organization deemed to be socioeconomically beneficial or against “anti-social” legislation. The standards are based on a long list of values, much of which are policies that to increase government spending and involvement in social welfare, but also includes increasing transparency and public participation in the democratic process, and guaranteeing equality for all.
