Histadrut demands full-time Hirchson replacement

Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini demanded on Sunday that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert appoint a full-time replacement for Finance Minister Avhraham Hirchson, who has suspended himself for three months while the investigation against him continues. According to Eini, "the Israeli government can't allow itself to run without a full-time finance minister with clear authority and a clear policy."
