Veteran Politician, Isaac Herzog Elected As A New President Of Israel

Isaac Herzog is set to become Israel’s 11th president after winning Wednesday’s election against Miriam Peretz, in a secret ballot among the country’s 120 lawmakers.

Herzog will succeed Reuven Rivlin as the latter’s term ends on July 9.

Eighty-seven lawmakers voted for Herzog, while 27 voted for Peretz. He will officially replace outgoing President Reuven Rivlin next month, with his seven-year term beginning on July 9.

He will also be the first Israeli president who is the son of a former president. His father Chaim Herzog was Israel’s sixth president in 1983-1993.

Herzog, currently the head of the Jewish Agency, is also a former leader of the Labor party in 2013-2017.

Herzog defeated Miriam Peretz, a social activist who overcame the loss of two of her sons in battle to become an Israel Prize-winning educator. Peretz won only 27 votes.
