OnushondhanNews Desk :
Isaac Herzog has become the new president of Israel. He was elected by the Knesset in the Israeli parliament on Wednesday. He is the second-generation president of the country and the 11th overall. The election took place amid uncertainty over Israel’s prime minister.
Herzog, 60, lost to former headmistress Miriam Peretz in the fight to replace current President Reuven Rivlin. Reuven Rivlin was elected the rhetorical president of the country’s parliament in 2014.
Herzog Isaac will take over as President of Israel on July 9. He was first elected to the Israeli parliament in 2003. He recently served as head of the Israeli Jewish Association, a parastatal organization dedicated to maintaining government relations with Jews who have emigrated around the world.
