As the federal government coalition totters on the brink of collapse, Israel’s Minister of Finance Avigdor Liberman announced very last night that he is postponing conversations on the 2023 budget. He explained to Channel 12 News, “I spoke with the key minister and we made the decision that for the minute we are postponing the spending plan discussions in order to get arranged. We are freezing the conversations as a responsible authorities, and we will stop the summer season session and we will organize ourselves.

Liberman spoke about the defeat that the coalition experienced in the Knesset yesterday on the passing of the initially looking at of the monthly bill to increase the minimum wage to NIS 40 per hour. “We agreed (to postpone the finances conversations) due to the fact the vote went in opposition to the Committee for Legislative Issues. Most people must be responsible in what they are carrying out. I am confident that the spending budget will move later on and it will be a superior budget that is not populist.”

The defeat above the minimum amount wage expenses was just a single of a range of defeats inflicted on the government coalition in the Knesset this 7 days. It began with the failure to go the regulation regulating the legal condition for Jewish settlers in Judea and Samaria and ongoing with the failure to approve Matan Kahana as Minister for Religious Affairs, owing to the opposition of MK Idit Silman, the rebel Yamina MK who left the coalition two months ago and voted in opposition to the federal government for the to start with time.
