Former ambassador to the US, MK Michael Oren will not be a deputy minister in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's new government, sources confirmed Wednesday.

Speculation had been raised that Oren would become deputy foreign minister, because of his good ties with US President Barack Obama's administration and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

But, Kulanu party head Moshe Kahlon decided that the one deputy minister post his party received would go to MK Eli Cohen in the Construction Ministry.
