Regev tells Michaeli she is glad a woman is replacing her as transportation minister

Former Transportation Minister Miri Regev tells her replacement, Merav Michaeli, that she is glad a woman is replacing her in the ministry, long considered a male domain.

“I’m glad that another woman is entering what was once considered the male kingdom,” Regev says in a handover ceremony at the Transportation Ministry.

Regev also says that she hopes the reports that Michaeli plans “to cut budgets for [transportation in] Judea and Samaria are not correct.”
