Cabinet discusses salary reductions for ministers, MKs

The cabinet is discussing cuts to the salaries of ministers and Knesset members, due to the economic difficulties created by the pandemic.

Ministers are looking at a temporary reduction of 10-20 percent.

Several Likud ministers — Transportation Minister Miri Regev, Public Security Minister Amir Ohana, and Regional Cooperation Minister Ofir Akunis — suggest the salaries of top justice system officials should also be cut.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz responds that the government should “not mob judges.”
