Rivlin Apparently to Finance Committee

Despite tension between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and former Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin, it appears that Rivlin will be appointed to the Knesset Finance Committee, based on an agreement reached, Sunday, during a meeting between Rivlin and newly-appointed Coalition Chairman Yariv Levin.

There had been reports that Rivlin would not be named to the committee because of fears that he might vote against the coalition.
