Report: Lapid to replace ambassador to UK with Yesh Atid member

According to newspaper Haaretz, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid wants to recall Tzipi Hotovely, Israel’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, and appoint in her place a former minister from his own party, Yael German. Hotovely is a member of the Likud party.

Sources from within the Foreign Ministry have expressed their criticism of the alleged plan to cut short Hotovely’s tenure by two years, and several of them told Haaretz that doing so “would be legally impossible” and that Lapid would be unable to implement his plan.
