Ousted Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin to Join Finance Committee

Rivlin, who was publicly fired from his post, assures coalition chair Yariv Levin that he will check with him before voting by his conscience; will also join Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

Former Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin, who was publicly fired from his post last month and went on to hint that the prime minister's wife had something to do with it, will serve as a member of both the Knesset’s Finance Committee and its Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, following an agreement with coalition chairman MK Yariv Levin (Likud).
