Livni: Shai Nitzan Appointment Not One-Sided

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni defended last week's appointment of Deputy Attorney General Shai Nitzan as State Attorney Sunday, rejecting claims that the process was unjustly expedited without going through the necessary checks and balances.

Last week, nationalist MKs expressed fury at Nitzan's appointment. Not only was the fury directed at the appointment itself - Nitzan is reportedly against building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria - but also at perceived unfairness in the appointment process itself.
