Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday announced that he is allowing Likud MKs the freedom to vote as they wish on the matter of Knesset parliamentary inquiry commissions into the funding of left-wing NGOs. As a result, voting on the proposal was postponed.

The Likud faction had previously decided that they would support the investigative commissions.

Speaking at a Likud meeting, Netanyahu stated that a parliamentary investigative committee would lack the power to enact change and at the same time would further worsen the delegitimization of Israel worldwide.
