C'tee to Deal with Bank of Governor Appointment Soon


The Tuerkel Committee on senior civil-service appointments will meet in the next few days to discuss the nomination of Leo Leiderman as governor of the Bank of Israel. The committee must move quickly because its mandate ends in less than three weeks.

Professor Leiderman is expected to appear before the committee, as are Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yair Lapid. No problem is expected with the appointment.
