National Union leader Ya'acov Katz moved his office from the Knesset to the controversial Ulpana outpost on Sunday in an effort to prevent its evacuation. Katz led an unsuccessful effort to persuade the Knesset to pass a bill that could have helped legalize the outpost. His spokesman is a resident of the outpost.

"I think it is important for public officials to set a personal example," said Katz, who urged the public to visit him at his new office. The MK left a skeletal staff behind at the Knesset, his aide Jeremy Saltan.
