Is Ben Eliezer going to leave the government?
Israel channel 2 news says Defense Minister and current head of Labor Party, Ben Eliezer, is going to leave the government, this week. They said he's dropping in Labor Party polls and wants to use the vote on the budget as an excuse to leave the government while being seen to be taking a stand on social matters (blah blah blah) to boost his popularity among party members. They say it’s serious this time.
