Kadima faction chair MK Dalia Itzik on Monday sent an official letter on behalf of Kadima to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with a request to transfer authority of the Finance Committee to Kadima.

Itzik made the request after Jerusalem Magistrate's Court ruled earlier that the crimes which MK Tzahi Hanegbi was convicted of involved moral turpitude.

Itzik wrote in her letter "As you know at the beginning of the current Knesset, it was agreed between you and Opposition Head Tzipi Livni (Kadima,) that the MK Hanegbi who served in the 17th Knesset, will continue his role as chairman of the Committee for a limited period."

"It was also agreed that during this period that the chairmanship of the Economic Committee would be the responsibility of Likud," Itzik continued.
