Director of Bennett’s PMO announces resignation
Yair Pines announces that he is stepping down from his post as director of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s office.
The move is not particularly surprising, given that Pines was a Bennett appointee and the premier will be stepping down as early as next week in order to be replaced by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who will likely bring his own staff.
Pines is the latest in a growing list of Bennett aides who have resigned in recent months, following diplomatic adviser Shimrit Meir and chief-of-staff Tal Gan Zvi.
