Director General of the finance ministry, Dr. Yossi Bachar, announced on Monday that he intends to resign from the position he has held for three years. Bacher assented to the request of Finance Minister Avraham Hirchson that he keep his job for another few months, until the Knesset passes the 2007 state budget and certain organizational reforms are completed. This period will also allow Hirchson time to find an appropriate candidate for Bachar's position. Bachar was named director general in November 2003 and has held the position under three finance ministers: Binyamin Netanyahu, Ehud Olmert, and Hirchson.
