Shteinitz Offers Treasury Director Position to Eli Cohen


Galei Tzahal radio reports that Finance Minister Yuval Shteinitz has offered the position of treasury director to Eli Cohen, previously the treasury official in charge of wages. Cohen, a senior bank HaPoalim employee, will probably refuse the appointment.

Treasury director Chaim Shani resigned earlier this week, in protest over the government’s financial decision-making process.
