Many of us may need to turn to governmental ministries with certain requests or objections. Israel's ministries are responsible for issuing permits, business licenses, subsidies, grants, etc., both with respect to individuals and corporations. Submitting applications for these purposes usually requires assembling numerous documents, filling out many forms, meeting certain criteria (some of which are not sufficiently clear), and then following up with the relevant authority until a decision is reached.
All government ministries and state authorities are obliged to handle these requests in accordance with a set of values and principles which are known as "principle of good governance", or "administrative law". Officials are obligated to respond to the applicant adequately, and within a reasonable timeframe, and make their decision only after examining all the information brought before them. The decision must be rational, reasonable and fair, and, naturally, it is forbidden to reach a discriminatory decision or reach a decision due to ulterior considerations/motives (rather than those relevant to the case at hand).
