Herzog Mocks Netanyahu Over Presidential Election


Opposition leader MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) mocked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday over his failure to endorse one of the candidates in the presidential election.

Herzog jokingly said that Netanyahu, in an attempt to prevent MK Reuven Rivlin from being elected, should suggest that Pope Francis contend for the position.
