The colorful Likud MK Oren Hazan has been ousted from his post as deputy Knesset speaker, a position he has been filling in name only, as the speaker, Yuli Edelstein, has for months been preventing him from presiding over plenum sessions. ...
A spokesperson for Hazan is quoted as decrying the decision and saying it’s “bizarre” that it was announced while Hazan was “on a plane and unavailable, as part of a public diplomacy tour in the United States on behalf of the state.”
