Ron Kubi Removed from Office

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
It is now official. For now at least.
Minister Zeev Elkin replaced Minister Aryeh Deri as the Minister in charge of deciding the fate of Mayor of Tiberias Ron Kubi, after it was determined the Deri has a conflict of interest. After Kubi's disciplinary hearing, Elkin took the required time to consider the matter, and has now announced that he is removing Kubi from office. In Kubi's place will be a steering committee headed by the Deputy Director of the Ministry of Interior Muni Matouk to bring Tiberias back to healthy financial sustainability and get a budget passed. The city council of Tiberias is also being removed form office and the steering committee replacing them will be made up of various State employees from different offices.
I don't know if we've heard the last word from Ron Kubi yet - he'll probably appeal to the Supreme Court claiming collusion between Deri and Elkin - but his career seems to be over for now.
