Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon said on Friday that he will keep the environmental protection portfolio in his party following the resignation of Avi Gabbay.

Kahlon informed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday that his confidante, Gabbay, had quit the position."During the last year, we have laid foundations at the ministry that are important and essential to the quality of life of all Israel's citizens," Kahlon wrote on his Facebook page. "The plan to curb polluters in Haifa Bay will continue alongside other important initiatives that Gabbay introduced during his tenure."

"Avi Gabbay was one of the founders of Kulanu," the minister wrote. "He was among the first who believed in the project and urged the party's establishment as a nationalist and socioeconomic party that would chart a new course."
