Gantz calls for appointment of police commissioner ‘as soon as possible’

Defense Minister Benny Gantz calls for the immediate appointment of a police commissioner and the filling of other law enforcement roles, following the attorney general’s request to the High Court to force the government to appoint a top cop.

“We can’t leave the country waiting: I call for the appointment of a police commissioner, state attorney, and to complete all the other appointments as soon as possible,” says Gantz.

The process for appointing a state attorney has been kicked off.
