Yamina to vote with Likud on makeup of key Knesset panel

Yamina has agreed to support Likud’s proposal on the makeup of a key parliamentary panel, according to Hebrew media reports.

The vote establishing the Arrangements Committee is scheduled for later today.

Likud agrees to relinquish one of its seats on the committee to Yamina, giving it two representatives.

The Arrangements Committee, the first Knesset committee to be formed after an election, controls the legislative agenda in the new parliament until a new government is formed. This includes determining what other parliamentary committees will be formed and who will serve on them.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier today demanded that Yamina support Likud on the issue.
