Government passes 2015-2016 budget

After a long day of debating, nearly all the government’s ministers fall in line resulting in approval of a biannual budget; Defense Minister Ya’alon abstains due to demand that the Locker Committee findings be implemented.


The government approved the 2015-2016 budget early Thursday morning after a long day of negotiations between treasury officials and reluctant ministers. Twenty ministers voted for the implementation, while Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon chose to abstain from the vote.

Ya’alon refused to support the budget due to decision by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to accept Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon’s recommendation to set the defense budget at $14.5 billion for 2016, and condition the raising of the budget to $15.5 billion on the adoption of the principles of the Locker Committee.
