Incoming regional cooperation minister says no point in meeting predecessor

Meretz MK Issawi Frej, the incoming regional cooperation minister, says he has no need to meet with outgoing minister Ofir Akunis for an orderly transfer of responsibilities after the latter said today the ministry is unnecessary.

“I understand Akunis suddenly remembered today that that Regional Cooperation Ministry, which he led until today, is actually superfluous,” Frej tweets.

“If so, it seems it will also be unnecessary for us to meet, as there is no point in a handover with a person who says his job was unnecessary.”
