Committee Cancels Meeting on Harpaz Affair

The Knesset State Control Committee cancelled, Tuesday, a meeting that had been scheduled to discuss the just-released report by the state comptroller on the "Harpaz Affair" intrigues surrounding the selection of a successor to former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi of the Israel Defense Forces. The committee was also scheduled to vote on creating a committee to investigate the affair.

Coalition and opposition politicians objected to the holding of the hearing and creation of the committee during the period just before the elections.
