Gafni: Get Rid of Energy Ministry

Finance Committee head MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) called Tuesday to get rid of the Energy and Water Ministry. His call followed an increase in the price of electricity, coupled with a decision to cut manpower at government ministries.

“If they’re looking to cut manpower, they should cut the Ministry of Energy and Water. That ministry is inactive and does nothing, they don’t lift a finger to bring down the price of electricity… It’s just unnecessary and a waste of public resources,” he declared.
