Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his cabinet took leave of the PMO's director-general Eyal Gabai on Sunday, even though a new replacement has not yet been made.

Gabai tendered his resignation in June, against the backdrop of the appointment of Moshe Dayan as the new civil service commissioner, over Gabai's opposition. This reportedly created tension inside the Prime Minister's Office. Gabai extended the date of his departure, originally set for August 1, by more than a month.

Netanyahu praised Gabai, saying that he had an "outstanding" ability "to find creative solutions to systemic problems.  I chose you on the basis of your proven record and experience, along with your outstanding personal qualities.  You have all the qualities of an outstanding manager – ability, force of will and vision."
