Parliament began working this summer and Albert Saharovich, who holds the office of Knesset director-general, released an official document reminding serving MKs they must arrive to work with formal clothes, no matter how hot it is outside. 
 
Flip-flops, shorts, and sleeveless shirts are forbidden, Mako reported on Tuesday. Saharovich went on to inform readers that short skirts, torn jeans, sweatpants and crop-tops are also not allowed. 
 
Those who might forget and arrive to a panel or a work meeting in informal wear may receive a written warning, but only one, as they will not be allowed in the second time. 
 
The dress code is enforced for all those who enter parliament, including reporters.
