Proposal reportedly made to switch some ministerial posts in 2nd half of ‘change government’

In a bid to solve some of the remaining hurdles to forming a government, Hebrew media is reporting on proposal to rotate some ministerial posts after the prospective coalition’s first two years in office.

The reports say under the proposal, Yamina chief Naftali Bennett — who is slated to hand over the premiership then to Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid — will take over at the Interior Ministry from his party’s No. 2 Ayelet Shaked.

Shaked, in turn, will take over as justice minister from New Hope chief Gideon Sa’ar, who will become foreign minister.
