The Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee gathered Wednesday morning for a special meeting regarding PM Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to cancel Maj.-Gen.Yoav Galant's appointment to IDF chief of staff.

According to an official statement released by the committee chair MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima), Wednesday was a "complex and sad day for the state of Israel." Mofaz said that he "opposes the personal persecution campaign against him [Galant]." He added that the committee plans to discuss the legitimacy of the process that Galant underwent, and to examine the possibility of imposing tight parliamentary supervision on future proceedings.

According to Mofaz, the past procedures surrounding Galant's appointment presented a "fundamental constitutional problem."
