Former Likud minister Miri Regev, who has previously spoken of her hope to be prime minister one day, tells Channel 13 that Israel has “a social-status problem.”

“There is a Western elite here that essentially controls most of the centers of power,” she says.

She adds: “It is unacceptable that, after 73 years, there has been no Mizrahi male or female prime minister, and no Mizrahi male or female Supreme Court president.”

Regev, 56, was born in Israel to a Moroccan-born father and a Spanish-born mother.
