Shas: Kahlon appointment a desperate move

Shas leader Aryeh Deri has blasted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to name Minister Moshe Kahlon as the next chairman of the Israel Land Administration, saying that "this is a desperate move pulled in the last minute."


Another Shas official said that the appointment is not feasible. "Netanyahu may as well announce he is naming Kahlon as the president," he said. (Akiva Novick)
