The chairman of the Knesset's Finance Committee on Wednesday voiced fears over the resignation of Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer, saying his announcement comes as a "dramatic" surprise.

MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) told Israel Radio that in these "times of political and economic uncertainty, [the resignation] comes as a dramatic announcement."

Gafni called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz to clarify reports over future budget cuts.
