Barkat seeks to earn 1 shekel as an MK

Former Jerusalem Mayor and Likud MK Nir Barkat sent to the Knesset Comptroller Haim Avidor on Tuesday demanding that Knesset computer allow him to earn only one shekel a year.

Barkat, who was sworn in as MK for the first time on Tuesday, is looking to maintain the same symbolic salary he received as a mayor over the last decade.

"For me it is a great privilege to serve the public without receiving any compensation," wrote Barkat.

He added, "I am sure that as will be possible in the Jerusalem municipality, I can continue to do with my capacity as MK."
