Le nouveau gouvernement mis en place par Bibi Netanyahu devrait remplacer Tamano-Shata par un ministre de l’Immigration issu du parti HaTzionout HaDatit, allié à Maoz, selon un accord annoncé jeudi soir. Des informations ont indiqué que le poste serait attribué au député, Ofir Sofer.
Ofir Sofer is an Israeli politician. He is currently a member of the Knesset for the Religious Zionist Party.
Sofer is a former IDF major and is considered a disabled veteran. Afterwards he worked at the Ministry for the Development of the Periphery, the Negev and the Galilee.
In 2014, he became secretary general of the Orthodox-nationalist Tkuma party. When the party joined the Union of Right-Wing Parties alliance for the April 2019 Knesset elections, Sofer was placed fourth on the alliances’ list, and entered the Knesset when it won five seats.
During the 2021 election he ran in Likud list for the Knesset, as a member of Atid Ehad party, using it as a shelf party. On 14 June he split from Likud and merged with the Religious Zionist Party, after the swearing-in of the 36th government. The split was not officially approved until 27 June.
