Former Knesset Speaker Seeks Colleagues Trust


Former Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin sent an official request for support to all of his fellow Knesset members, Monday, ahead of the official launching of the campaign. Asking the same trust they gave him as speaker, Rivlin said he wanted to make the President's Residence a "house of cooperation, dialog and understanding".

Against the background of ideological turmoil in which the various sectors of Israeli society find themselves, he said the job of the president was to bridge the gaps.
