MK Eli Avidar is expected to resign from the Knesset after being appointed cabinet minister under Norwegian law, replacing him with the next Knesset on the list of Yisrael Beiteinu.



The government will approve tomorrow morning (Sunday) the addition of Avidar as a minister in the government and the appointment of MK Yair Golan (Meretz) to the position of Deputy Minister of Economy.

As first reported in Walla !, Avidar is later slated to be appointed Minister of Intelligence in place of Elazar Stern, who is due to run for the presidency of the agency in October.

Until then, he will be appointed minister in the Prime Minister's Office with responsibility for "strategic planning" issues, even though only earlier this month the government decided to close the ministry for strategic matters.

Upon joining the government, Avidar will be the 28th minister around the cabinet table, while the appointment of Yair Golan to the position of deputy economy minister will bring the number of deputy ministers in the government to five. However, only seven government ministers still serve as MKs, after the coalition expanded Norwegian law and brought its use to an all-time high. 



The cost of a minister's office is estimated at NIS 6.5 million a year, and the cost of a deputy minister's office at NIS 2.5 million. In addition, the cost of the bureau of each of the 21 new MKs who took the place of the resigning ministers is about NIS 1.7 million a year.



Avidar's appointment as minister was made as part of the coalition's preparations for the transfer of the state budget, in order to secure the majority and prevent defections and objections that would frustrate the approval of the budget.

Avidar, who ran in the Yisrael Beiteinu election, quarreled with party chairman and finance minister Avigdor Lieberman, and since the formation of the government has been acting as a single faction in the Knesset. Formation of the government, Avidar refused Lieberman's offer to be appointed Minister of Finance and demanded an executive file, and will now be appointed Minister of the Prime Minister's Office and later Minister of Intelligence, subject to Stern's election to the Agency.

His appointment was intended to resolve the crisis between the coalition and the opposition.

Golan's appointment as deputy minister is part of an arrangement designed to resolve the crisis between the coalition and the opposition that paralyzes Knesset work.

Golan was supposed to head the Aliyah and Absorption Committee, but Meretz resigned in favor of the opposition in exchange for his appointment as deputy minister.

The decision to transfer another committee to the opposition was supposed to pave the way for a solution to the crisis, but there is still disagreement in the Knesset about the division of seats within the committees and especially in the Finance and Economy Committee where the opposition demands more seats.



In addition to the appointments, the government is expected to approve at its meeting tomorrow a precedent-setting decision that determines the transfer of Israel to a low-carbon economy.

The decision, signed by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, and Ministers Tamar Zandberg, Yair Lapid, Avigdor Lieberman, Karin Elharar, Merav Michaeli, Orna Barbibai and Ayelet Shaked, sets for the first time a national target for 2050 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in accordance with Israel's commitment to the UN Climate Convention. .
