Government Statistician Says Criticism of Israeli Ministries May Have Cost Him His Job

After 11 years in office, Shlomo Yitzhaki, who in the past criticized government ministries, was informed in an email that the Prime Minister's Office will no longer require his services.

Outgoing government statistician Shlomo Yitzhaki says the decision not to extend his term in office may have been the result of criticism he voiced. Yizhaki complained in the past that government ministries failed to turn appropriate data to his office.
