New Hope’s Elkin appointed minister in charge of liaising with Knesset

New Hope’s Ze’ev Elkin will be appointed to the post of minister in charge of liaising between the government and the Knesset, in addition to holding the housing portfolio, according to a joint statement by Yamina, Yesh Atid and New Hope.

“This is a young government and we need Elkin’s tremendous experience and wisdom to deal with the immense challenges we face, starting with passing the budget,” the statement says.

The parties also reject reports on Elkin’s other demands as “spin.”
