      Knesset Guide to Help Absorb 53 New Members

      Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said, Thursday, that the Knesset is producing a new book to help 53 newly-elected Knesset members know what they need to know. Rivlin told Channel 2 Television, that a month ago, a good number of the first-timers had no idea they would be voted in "and now they are coming to fulfill the mission and desire to know." Agence France Presse cited Central Elections Committee figures, Thursday night, that the number of first-time Knesset members is 47.

      Rivlin said that a gathering will be held next  week where all the new members will be informed of their tasks. They will also be told how the Knesset will help them.
