Foreign Minister Yair Lapid wrote the Jewish Agency selection committee on Wednesday asking to postpone its scheduled vote for chairman in order to give time for an agreed-upon nominee for the position to be found.
Lapid wrote the letter after his candidate, MK Elazar Stern, quit the race following the scandal of him shredding documents of anonymous complaints in the IDF.

“It will be much appreciated if you give us the extra time so we can suggest the best candidate for the position, as we hold the Agency in such high regard,” said Lapid.
The Zman Yisrael website reported that Lapid was interested in Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni running for the position.
Livni responded to The Jerusalem Post: “I don’t know what the source of the report is. For years, I have not responded to theoretical reports about me, and I will not do so now either.”
Yamina MK Yom-Tov Kalfon, who is considered the most right-wing MK in the coalition, said he had no problem with Livni receiving the post.
“I would much rather have her helping bring immigrants from around the world than heading a negotiating team with the Palestinians,” he said.
