By Hamodia Staff

YERUSHALAYIM — Former Minister of the Interior Ayelet Shaked, after failing to secure enough votes for her party to enter the government, has entered the private sector.

Shaked was hired by Kardan Real Estate as chairperson, replacing Yosef Greenfeld, the company notified the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) on Sunday.

“I am happy to join the Kardan Real Estate Group and to continue working to build and settle the country. Kardan Real Estate is a long-established and professional company with great potential and I believe that together with the existing management team we will further develop it and move it forward,” she said.

Shaked served as Minister of Justice from 2015-2019 as part of the Jewish Home party and as Minister of Interior in 2021-2022 on behalf of the Yamina party. She announced her retirement from politics after Yamina did not win enough votes to enter the government. Shaked spearheaded attempts throughout the previous decade to draft yeshiva bochurim to the IDF, which was met with fierce opposition from Gedolei Yisrael. She was the chairwoman of the Special Committee for the Equal Sharing of the Burden Bill, which was devoted to drafting yeshiva bochurim, also known as the “Shaked Committee.”

Kardan develops residential projects and income producing property and acts as a building contractor for housing, commercial, public and infrastructure developments through its fully owned subsidiary El-Har Engineering and Construction. The company is currently engaged in the construction of 14,000 homes.
