The committee to select the next attorney general narrows the selection down to three names it presents to the government: Gali Baharav-Miara, Roi Scheindorf, and Itai Ofir.
Baharav-Miara previously served eight years as the Tel Aviv district attorney for civil affairs; Scheindorf is the current deputy attorney general for international law; and Ofir is the Defense Ministry legal adviser.
Now, Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar, with the approval of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, will select from the three finalists. Sa’ar has said that he backs Baharav-Miara, who, if appointed, would become the first woman in the role.
Attorney General Avichai Mandeblit’s six-year term in the role is slated to end on Tuesday.
