Attorney-general Avichai Mandelblit will have to decide whether to investigate a senior politician involved in a corruption scandal that could have far reaching political consequences, Channel 2 reported Tuesday night.

The decision is expected to be the first test for Mandelblit, who entered his post in January. When reached by Channel 2 on Monday, the politician was unaware of the scandal. Rivals of the politician expressed satisfaction and hope that the scandal will lead to the end of the senior politician's career. More information currently cannot be expanded on the matter.

Mandelblit is expected to convene the heads of his investigations department in order to decide whether to summon the senior politician for questioning under caution.
