A conservative women's group says that Yesh Atid leader, Finance Minister Yair Lapid, is helping the extreme Left appoint hundreds of its supporters to key positions, and masking the ploy as affirmative action for women and Arabs.
Kati Cohen, who heads Women for Israel (NELI), addressed an urgent letter to several key Knesset Members from Likud-Beytenu and the Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi), in which she explained how the scam allegedly works.
Cohen notes that the Finance Ministry recently published a message to the general public, inviting people to take part in a tender for the appointment of 500 directors to governmental companies. The tender is biased in favor of women in general, and Arab women in particular, supposedly as corrective discrimination or affirmative action. The bias in favor of women and Arabs is anchored in legislation and has received the sanction of the Supreme Court.
Many of the directors already serving in governmental company boards are members or activists in the 'Israel Women's Network', a New Israel Fund organization, notes Cohen.
