Another tension in the government? A few hours after the appointment of Prof. Roni Gimzo to the position of National Corona Projector, News 12 commentator Amit Segal reported this morning (Thursday) that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Health Minister Yuli Edelstein did not update Deputy Prime Minister Bnei Gantz on the appointment. This is despite the coalition agreement, according to which all position appointments will be made by agreement between the Likud leaders and Blue and White.
Following the publication, Edelstein himself admitted that he had not spoken to Gantz on the subject, saying that “the Minister of Health appoints the director of the UAV, but I am not responsible for the updates of all the ministers. I informed the Prime Minister, and he welcomed the appointment. “If I did not have time to update the defense minister – I apologize.”
Asked if the lack of appointment is related to recent struggles against Blue and White, Edelstein said that “I do not have time for that. I see the political quarrels in recent days and everything that is happening here, and do not understand where people live – we are in the midst of crisis, this is not the time to quarrel. “The right hand is stronger than the left hand.”
Although not updated, Ganz spoke this morning with Prof. Gamzo and wished him success in his new role. In his remarks, he told Gamzo that “the entire defense establishment is committed to helping in the fight against Corona, we will be at your disposal and by your side.”
Professor Gamzo – I, and the entire defense establishment here are at your disposal and by your side. Lots of success in the job.

Minister Meirav Cohen also welcomed the appointment and said that “Prof. Roni Gamzo is an excellent appointment to the position of Corona Projector. I was privileged to work with him in formulating the ‘Magen Avot VeAmotot’ program for the protection of residents of nursing homes and geriatric institutions
On the other hand, MK Ofer Shelach responded to criticism of Gabi Barbash’s decision to withdraw his candidacy for the position. A projector, and as long as Bibi is in power there will only be chaos and harm to civilians. “
