Petition: Remove Deputy Foreign Minister Hanegbi


As per the government’s legal counsel’s estimations, the Movement for Quality Government in Israel has petitioned the Supreme Court against the appointment of Member of Knesset Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud beytenu) to the position of Deputy Foreign Minister, in light of a past conviction.

The petition requests that the High Court explains why it did not weigh all considerations, including Hanegbi’s worthiness of the position, prior to his appointment.
