Likud minister wears protective mask, gloves in Knesset plenum

Culture Minister Miri Regev attends the Knesset plenum session on forming the Arrangements Committee with a mask and gloves on.

Regev, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud party, says the selection of a new Knesset speaker would send Israel to a fourth round of elections and lashes out at the rival Blue and White party.

“Blue and White is ready to carry out immoral and illegal moves only out of a desire to replace the elected government,” she says.

Israel has had a caretaker government since December 2018, when the Knesset voted to dissolve and go to the first of three rounds of indecisive elections.

As other lawmakers speak, Regev periodically pulls down her mask to berate the MKs before pulling it up again.
