MK Gamliel: Make Karnit Flug Bank of Israel Governor


Following Monday's announcement by former Bank of Israel governor Ya'akov Frenkel that he was withdrawing his candidacy for a third term, Member of Knesset Gila Gamliel (Likud Beyteinu) called for acting governor Karnit Flug to be nominated.

The former deputy minister for the advancement of young people, students and women said that Doctor Flug is filling the job in the best possible way. She added, "There is an opportunity to appoint a woman to the position for the first time and thereby break another invisible barrier."
