The Foreign Ministry's Appointments Committee is set to meet Sunday to approve the expected appointment of Homeland Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i (Independence) as Israel's next ambassador to China.

If approved as expected, Vilna'i would be replaced in the Knesset by former MK Shakeed Shanan on the Labor list. The Independence Party announced Tuesday that they had worked out a deal with Shanan, whereby he will break off from Labor in order to join them.
