A vote to create a key parliamentary panel has been postponed until next week, following disagreements.
The Arrangements Committee, the first in the Knesset to be formed after an election, determines which parliamentary committees will be formed and who will sit on them. Crucially, it also controls the legislative schedule in the new parliament until a new government is formed.
Likud takes control of the committee since it must be chaired by the party of the current PM-designate. Likud’s former coalition whip Miki Zohar is expected to head up the committee.
