State Comptroller Joseph Shapira on Tuesday announced that he would be issuing his major report on housing at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
The report is considered a bombshell in the election which could heavily damage Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu by criticizing him for failing to reduce the overpriced housing market and by altering the focus from his more comfortable national security terrain to socio-economic issues, where the Zionist Union is considered to have an advantage.
The timing of the report is not merely problematic for Netanyahu since it is pre-elections, but also because some may view it as upstaging or sucking some of the public attention and oxygen out of his upcoming speech on Iran to the US Congress next week.
The comptroller’s decision to issue the report pre-election came amid heavy pressure to delay from the Likud party and equally heavy pressure to not delay by other parties.
