Yishai to form c'tee to examine daylight saving extension

February 7, 2011 21:09

Interior Minister Eli Yishai (Shas) has retracted his former stance and decided to form a professional committee that will examine the possibility of extending the daylight savings time, Channel Two reported Monday evening, explaining the shift as the result of the public pressure Yishai faced over his insistence on maintaining the abnormally short daylight savings period in Israel.

According to the report, Yishai announced that daylight savings was a professional, not religious question, and therefore could be deliberated by a group of experts from academia and the public sector.
