The 70-member committee, comprising prominent figures and experts and headed by Hebrew University president Menahem Magidor and Tel Aviv University president Itamar Rabinovich, was appointed last year by Katsav to take an in-depth look at regional and national elections, relations between local and federal authorities and government structure, and to recommend appropriate measures for improvement.
