New Channel 10 chairman won’t take office until court decision

The appointment of Rami Sadan as chairman of Channel 10 News will not go ahead until the High Court rules on a petition lodged against him.

Sadan reportedly insulted the Shas party and its leader Aryeh Deri last week, prompting furious backlash from the party, which demanded his immediate resignation over the “racist” comments against Sephardic Jews. Shas lawmakers have boycotted Knesset votes, compromising the coalition majority, in protest of Sadan’s appointment.
