Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
It only took a month, but Likud-Beteinu finally managed to close a deal with its first coalition partner, Tzipi Livni’s HaTnua party.
Livni will reportedly receive the Justice Ministry and be an inner cabinet member.
Amir Peretz will serve as environmental protection minister, and Amram Mitzna will be chairman of the Knesset House Committees.
It was announced at the joint statement that Livni would also be in charge of peace talks with the Palestinians.
The Justice Minister is one of the most powerful positions in the government, as she (in this case) can kill any proposed bill that she disagrees with. Furthermore, all the progress made by the previous government in ending the incestuous self-appointment process of Supreme Court justices can potentially be reversed overnight.
