Rivlin Ready to Drop in List for Female Candidate


Likud candidate Reuven Rivlin, the Knesset Speaker, said Wednesday that he is willing to take a one-slot hit to his position on the Likud Beyteinu Knesset list in order to allow a female candidate to be placed among the party’s top ten.

MK Tzipi Hotovely was elected to the ninth slot on the Likud list, but is below the top ten in the joint Likud-Yisrael Beyteinu list.
