Herzog Takes Coalition to Court Over Key Knesset Committee


Opposition leader MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) on Wednesday filed an appeal with the Supreme Court, in protest against the delay in the appointment of a permanent chairman to the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

The committee, considered to be the most important of all the Knesset committees, has been without a chairman since November, when former chairman, MK Avigdor Liberman, returned to his previous position as foreign minister after he was acquitted of criminal charges.
