MK's Law to Have Former Leaders Work for the Community


MK Daniel Ben-Simon (Labor) announced on Sunday that he plans to submit a bill to the Knesset that would prohibit prime ministers and presidents to own private businesses for personal gain for a period of three years after the end of their tenure.

Instead, MK Ben-Simon’s bill will have these former leaders focus on activities for the benefit of the community and society at large.
