      Knesset Committee Assignments to be Confirmed Next Week

      The Knesset Steering Committee is scheduled to meet next Thursday to confirm the composition of the parliament's various committees. The committee will also approve deputy speakers to allow as wide a representation as possible among the factions. 

      The scheduling of the meeting before the start of the next session was the initiative of MK Yariv Levin (Likud) to enable the committees to function with the Knesset's next session. Before the meeting, the Likud faction will meet to name committee chairmen not already determined by coalition agreements.
