Netanyahu speaks to attorney general blackballed by cabinet

In a statement to Hebrew-language media outlets, Likud says that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara after she was not invited to the cabinet meeting, and the two plan to meet on Sunday.

A Likud source tells Channel 12 news that the cabinet meeting was only ceremonial, indicating Baharav-Miara was not needed.

Nonetheless, two judicial officials tell The Times of Israel that it is unusual for her not to have been invited, noting that her predecessor Avichai Mandelblit sat in on the last government’s first meeting.
