The cabinet on Sunday approved lawyer Michal Halperin as the new Antitrust Commissioner.

Halperin will replace David Gilo, who resigned in August in protest of a deal regulating Israel's natural gas industry.

Halperin, who leads the Antitrust and Competition Group at the Meitar Liquornik Geva Leshem Tal law firm and served as deputy to the head of the Antirtust Authority from 2002-2006, was on the shortlist with Uri Schwartz, who has been the acting head of the Authority since Gilo's departure.
