Search On Again For Bank of Israel Governor

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

Professor Leo Leiderman withdrew his candidacy for governor of the Bank of Israel, just two days before his election was to be announced.

Leiderman’s withdrawal comes just days after Yaakov Frankel withdrew his candidacy, after an old scandal involving a duty free in Hong Kong resurfaced.

PM Netanyahu and FM Lapid stated their regret with Leiderman’s decision.

Opposition MK Yechimovitch said that Lapid and Netanyahu need to go to the home of the former deputy governor Karnit Flug, and ask forgiveness from her, for not hiring her as the next bank governor. Flug quit 2 days ago, after she learned of Leiderman’s appointment.
