Netanyahu says he'll quit soon… as foreign minister

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that he intended to give up some of the four additional ministerial posts he currently holds, including that of foreign minister. But he didn’t say when.

At a stormy session of the Knesset’s State Control Committee, Netanyahu faced two hours of critical questions by opposition lawmakers on his foreign policy, including over the fact that he has held the Foreign Ministry portfolio since the 2015 elections. He also fills the roles of economy minister, communications minister and regional affairs minister.

He told Knesset members at the meeting that he intended to give up “a few portfolios soon.” He added that, “I don’t want to hold on to the Foreign Ministry forever,” but did not say when he would appoint someone to that post or any of the others he holds. (The prime minister has kept the multiple portfolios under his control to make them available to possible coalition partners, but has also been criticized for the influence he has consequently been able to exert in the multiple fields.)

  1. God bless & strengthen Prime Minister Netanyahu in all functions of ministry for Israel. I bind critical spirits in this government, accusing him instead of blessing him in Jesus' mighty name. I thank you Lord for rewarding him for all the good leadership he is doing & I thank you for favor & wisdom to carry on in all area of that government he is responsible for as long as he is commissioned by you to do so; give him strength from you to battle against any darkness in the heart of the government there & other politicians who are unjustly accusing him in your mighty precious name, Jesus; God bless U Prime Minister!
