There has been some confusion in the race for the Chief Sephardi Rabbi position, Army Radio reported on Sunday.

The Rabbinate have decided to investigate the certification of Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who was recently brought forward as Shas' leading candidacy for the position.

Yitzhak replaced his elder brother Rabbi Avraham Yosef as the leading candidate, after Avraham was forced to withdraw due to becoming the subject of a police investigation.
