Coalition loses vote due to MK giving TV interview

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's coalition lost its first vote of the summer session on Wednesday because Deputy Economy Minister Yair Golan missed the vote due to a television interview.

Members of the coalition expressed anger at Golan for missing the vote, which was on the preliminary reading on a bill sponsored by Likud MK Yoav Kisch about police wiretapping.

Likud MK David Amsalem came in last minute to cast the deciding vote.
