Edelstein Drops Broadcasting Task for Information Role

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu approved on Thursday, a request by Public Information and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli-Yoel Edelstein to be released from responsibility over reforms in the financially-troubled Israel Broadcasting Authority. Edelstein was recently involved in selection of a chairman for the authority, as well as selecting candidates for its governing body.

The Prime Minister's Office announced that Edelstein would be joining the public information efforts for sanctions against Iran's nuclear development program and the effort against the Goldstone report on last winter's Cast Lead counter-terror operation in Gaza.
