On the way to an appointment in the Ministry of Housing: In the coming days, it will be decided which of the ministers in the right-wing bloc will head the Ministry of Housing in place of Minister Yaakov Litzman, who resigned more than two weeks ago. “Globes” has learned that Litzman’s entourage is interested in an outline similar to the one in which Litzman served as deputy minister of the Ministry of Health in previous governments and from there ran the ministry.
In the coming days, the issue is expected to be discussed together with the Prime Minister, with the intention of appointing an existing minister to the Ministry of Housing in addition to an existing position, and after the holidays, Litzman returns to the ministry as deputy minister.
Even in the last two weeks since Litzman resigned from the post, the ministry’s procedure was in fact followed by the head of his staff in Bechik, and despite his resignation, the decision to appoint a minister to the post will go through his bureau in accordance with coalition agreements.
Meanwhile, the name of Education Minister Yoav Galant, who has already headed the ministry, has risen to hold him again alongside his position in the Ministry of Education.
Another option being considered in Litzman’s environment is the appointment of another MK from Agudat Israel to the position of deputy minister in the Ministry of Housing, along with the appointment of a minister. Although there is currently no standard for a deputy minister in the ministry, it should be noted that this is not an expansion of the large government anyway, but an existing minister who will be given another position and then appointed deputy minister on the same existing quota of deputy ministers in the 35th Netanyahu government.
Litzman’s resignation went into effect two weeks ago in protest of the government’s intention to restrict prayers on holidays due to the corona plague. Litzman said at the time that “it is clear to everyone that Yom Kippur, which will be closed, will prevent tens of thousands of Jews from attending Yom Kippur prayers, including those who come to synagogue at least on this day. It is planned that it is not sensitive to the holidays and festivals of Israel and does not see the needs of tens of thousands of worshipers. ” In view of the same intention at the time, Litzman wrote that the Rebbe of Gur had ordered him to resign from the government.
