Knesset votes to form panel to oversee response to pandemic

Lawmakers vote to form four Knesset committees, including a panel that will oversee the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

That committee will be chaired by Blue and White MK Ofer Shelah.

The other parliamentary panels are focused on preparing the education system for next year, headed by Meretz’s Nitzan Horowitz; a special labor and welfare committee; and a committee to reduce violence and crime in Arab communities.

Right-wing lawmakers boycotted the plenary votes to form the panels.
