The public search committee established to recommend candidates for the post of attorney-general failed on Thursday to make any nominations and informed the prime minister and the minister of justice that it was returning its mandate and ceasing to function. Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman had instructed the committee to nominate three candidates for the post. The establishment of the search committee was based on a government decision. The government has the power to change that decision if it wants to and establish some other mechanism for making the appointment, including the possibility that Neeman or the government will directly appoint the attorney-general.
