Average Israeli Legislator Showing Up For Just 46 Percent Of Votes


knessetThe typical Knesset member was present for just 46 percent of votes during the summer session that ran from April 22 through August 3.

Coalition chairman Yariv Levin gets the top marks, which may not be surprising since it’s his job to ensure the passage of bills. He was present for 80 percent of votes.

Behind Levin were a number of new parliamentarians. Fully 17 of the 20 MKs behind Levin joined the Knesset after the January election. The vast majority of this group are members of Finance Minister Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party. Read more at Haaretz.
