MK Margalit: Now is Not the Time for a Knesset Summer Recess

MK Erel Margalit (Labor) this morning (Tuesday) called for a postponement of the Knesset's summer recess which is scheduled to begin next week.

"The Israeli Knesset has received a Tzav 8 (Order 8; call-up for reserve duty in times of emergency - ed.) Just as in the normal workplace no one takes vacation at the height of its season, so it is to manage the country in a time of war.  It is not a privilege - it is our duty, and this is not the time for a summer recess," Margalit said.
