MK Yohanan Plessner (Kadima) called for the prime minister and the education minister to remove Deputy Education Minister Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) from office, reported Army Radio on Saturday.
The call for Porush's ouster came after the deputy education minister said he would move his offices to the gates of the jail where the fathers of the Emmanuel students are being held for refusing to obey the High Court ruling to send their daughters to the Beit Ya'acov school.
Plessner said that it was unacceptable that MK Porush would use his office and government resources to lead a protest against a ruling of the High Court.
