Coalition chairman Tzahi Hanegbi on Tuesday suspended Likud MK Yoav Kisch from the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and the Finance Committee for skipping the vote on the haredi conscription bill which effectively postpones a previous law mandating ultra-Orthodox conscription into the IDF.
Kisch's suspension will be in effect until further notice.
Likud MK Sharren Haskel and Kulanu MK Merav Ben-Ari also skipped the vote, but made sure to make arrangements so that they would not face similar punishment.
The new law was voted in by a count of 49 in favor and 36 opposed.
