Defense Minister Amir Peretz told Israel Radio that he intends to vote against a proposal by Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann to return the responsibility for appointing attorneys-general to the government. Peretz said he had made his decision because "such a sensitive subject at such a sensitive time should be discussed differently." "The government absolutely can't give the public the message that it's about to take over all legal aspects of the country: the attorney-general, the Supreme Court, the state comptrollers, and investigative authorities. We have to protect all these and let the public know they're not influenced by politics or anything else."
