PM: Exclusion of energy minister from COP26 over inaccessibility ‘unacceptable’

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has spoken with Energy Minister Karine Elharrar and told her it is “unacceptable” that she was left out of the COP26 climate summit for an entire day due to wheelchair inaccessibility, the premier’s office says.

Bennett has decided that tomorrow, Elharrar’s vehicle will arrive at the summit area as part of the prime minister’s official convoy and thus will be allowed in.
