The unity coalition flexed its muscles at the 26-MK opposition, voting in MK Uri Ariel (National Union) as chairman of the Knesset's State Control Committee on Tuesday, despite objections from Labor, the opposition's largest party.

The committee chairman was selected in a heated Knesset House Committee debate, in which 10 MKs supported Ariel, and only MKs Amir Peretz (Labor) and Ilan Gilon (Meretz) opposed. The MKs unanimously backed MK Ronnie Bar-On (Kadima) as Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman at the same meeting.
