Foreign Minister Yair Lapid did not present a new candidate for the Jewish Agency chairmanship by the 4 p.m. Sunday deadline set for him by the selection committee when it rejected his request for a significant delay in choosing the next chairman of the agency.
The committee will convene on Monday afternoon to determine which candidates will be the finalists for the coveted post, sources on the committee said Thursday.
Former agency candidate Elazar Stern quit the race last week due to the public uproar over comments he made that he had shredded anonymous complaints during his tenure as head of the Manpower Division in the IDF. 
His departure left eight candidates: Bar-Ilan University law professor Yaffa Zilbershatz, Jerusalem deputy mayor Fleur Hassan-Nahum, ANU museum director Irina Nevzlin and former MKs Michal Cutler-Wunsh, Danny Danon, Uzi Dayan, Michael Oren and Omer Yankelevich.
The sources said the most likely scenario is that there will be four finalists, at least two of which will be women.
Sources on the selection committee said it was important to them to show Lapid that the government would not control their choice. The committee wants to finalize the process of selecting the new chairman in time for the Jewish Agency Board of Governors meeting on October 24 to 26, ideally by the end of next week.
