Minister of Religious Services (Shas) MK David Azoulai has on Monday, 25 Adar, submitted his resignation from Knesset. He will however continue serving in his cabinet post. His Knesset spot will be filed by his son, Yinon.
The minister explained that his resignation from the Knesset was meant to prevent damage to the parliamentary activity of Shas due to lengthy medical treatment that will take place in the coming weeks.
Minister Azoulai emphasized that he will continue to lead the Ministry of Religious Services with HKBH’s assistance until the end of his tenure with the blessing of the Moetzas Chachmei HaTorah of Shas.
