The Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday announced that the welfare portfolio will be given to Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon for three months.
The appointment comes after outgoing Welfare and Social Services Minister Isaac Herzog spoke out Tuesday against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s failure to adequately address social issues and called on him to immediately appoint a replacement to head the ministry he called “the real social security office of the State of Israel.”
