Kahlon relinquishes handling of HOT due to family connections
The Knesset has transferred authority for dealing with HOT from Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon to Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein.
Before his appointment as minister of communications, Kahlon said that his sister worked at HOT, and that he would voluntarily forgo handling any specific issues in which there might be a conflict of interest.
MK Meir Sheetrit (Kadima) said that, as a member of the opposition, he should support transferring the authority from Kahlon, but believes that the issue came up because of special interests, because Kahlon is trying to help the public by cutting prices for telecommunications services.
