Meretz’s Horovitz, Zandberg to resign from Knesset under Norwegian law

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

Meretz says that chairman Nitzan Horowitz and party No. 2 Tamar Zandberg are set to resign from the Knesset under the Norwegian law, which allows ministers to give up their seats in the Knesset for other members of their parties.

Horovitz is set to be health minister and Zandberg environmental protection minister in the new government.

Replacing them in the Knesset will be former MK Michal Rozin and party activist Gabi Lasky.
