Likud MK Yuval Steinitz was to be temporarily responsible for the duties of the prime minister while Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was in London for Margaret Thatcher's funeral.
Due to an antiquated law, there must be an acting prime minister while Netanyahu is abroad and Steinitz was personally selected by Netanyahu for the temporary position.
