Former MK Schneller a Candidate for Cabinet Secretary

Former MK Otniel Schneller, who in the past served as the Secretary General of the Yesha Council, is Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s leading candidate for the position of Cabinet Secretary, Channel 10 reported Sunday.

Schneller himself confirmed the report but said that has not yet received a formal request. "If and when it will be relevant, I would like to take the job," he said.

Schneller was one of the right-leaning Knesset members of the Kadima party in the previous Knesset. He also joined Netanyahu and his former chief of staff, Natan Eshel, in their unsuccessful efforts to split the party.
