Ra’am coalition deal grants the Islamist party a deputy minister in the PMO

The coalition deal between Ra’am and Yesh Atid includes a deputy ministerial post for Ra’am in the Prime Minister’s Office, Hebrew media reports.

Ra’am leadership, its Shura Council, has yet to decide if the party will activate that article in the agreement and appoint such a deputy minister, and it’s not yet clear what the post’s powers or areas of responsibility would be.

But if Ra’am ends up with a deputy minister in the PMO, that would be a first for the Islamist party.
