Kara Appointed Minister Of Communications


Minister-without-Portfolio Ayoub Kara has been appointed Minister of Communications, becoming the first Druse tapped for the post. The appointment must be approved by the cabinet, which is seen as a formality at this point.

The appointment follows a petition to the High Court against PM Netanyahu serving as communications minister in light of one of the police investigations against him, Case 2000, citing there is a conflict of interests

The appointment is sudden and a surprise to most, obviously the response to the court petition against the prime minister.
