Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear in recent days to Interior Minister Eli Yishai and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz that he would not fire them despite the "special responsibility" State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss gave them for the December 2010 Carmel Fire.

But opposition and Kadima MKs said Yishai and Steinitz as well as Netanyahu should lose their jobs over their handling of the fire.

"In an properly functioning country, the prime minister, interior minister, and finance minister would turn in their keys and go home," Meretz MK Ilan Gilon said.
