BMW Not 'Green Enough' for Health Minister


As a new minister – holding the health portfolio – Yael German is eligible for the perks given to Israeli ministers, and that includes a new car. This year, ministers are being given BMWs as their vehicle of choice.

But German has turned down her new wheels – preferring a hybrid vehicle. She would also settle for an electric car – but both requests were turned down by the government motor pool.
