Livni to serve as justice minister in next government

Hatnua Chairwoman Tzipi Livni and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have reached an agreement ensuring her participation in his third government.


According to the agreement, Livni will serve as justice minister. Hatnua will also get the Environmental Protection portfolio. The ministry will apparently be headed by Knesset Member Amir Peretz. The agreement between Livni and Netanyahu was made behind the backs of other members of the Hatnua faction. (Yuval Karni, Moran Azulay)
