City Councils Struggle in Arad, Mitzpeh Ramon

City councils in Arad and Mitzpeh Ramon are facing possible dissolution due to ongoing disagreements between council members. In both councils, the coalition and opposition have been unable to come to agreements, leaving the city budget without official approval.

The Ministry of the Interior will decide what actions should be taken against the councils in the next few days. One option is to dissolve the councils, as was done recently to three city councils that did not pay their workers on time. Arad council members from both the coalition and opposition have been called to a meeting to discuss the issue.
