New Israeli Government Makes Major Changes to Ministry Staffs
Ynet – Only 10 days have passed since the 34th Israeli government was sworn in, and one can already clearly see the transformation: a string of dismissals and resignations of senior pubic officials reveal Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several of his ministers experience at changing the order of priorities and picking loyalists. The opposition calls this “beheadings”.
Yael Endoran, the director-general of the Ministry of Finance, resigned her post only 10 days after the elections, almost two months before Moshe Kahlon was sworn in as finance minister. She was the harbinger of things to come. Last week, during Netanyahu’s first day of work as communications minister, he dismissed Communications Ministry Director-General Avi Berger over the phone.
