The Civil Service Commission will probe Cabinet Secretary Tzahi Braverman, after he revealed who he voted for despite being a public servant.
Braverman tweeted a photo of himself voting and revealing he was voting for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud.
מזכיר הממשלה צחי ברוורמן, שהוא כידוע עובד מדינה, מדגים באינסטגרם שלו תעמולה מהמקפצה היום בקלפי בנס ציונה. פניתי למשרד ראש הממשלה לתגובה, אעדכן pic.twitter.com/pcA0kouNYh

As a public servant rather than a political official, Braverman is barred from publicly endorsing a political party even though he formerly was a prominent Likud activist and campaigner.
The tweet was deleted only after three hours, in which the act was slammed by critics.
According to the Haaretz daily, the Civil Service Commission said the tweet went against the public service rules and will be probed by its disciplinary branch.
