Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin voted at the polling station near his Jerusalem home. Rivlin called upon Israel's citizens to go out and vote.
"Unfortunately, the Israeli public has lost its trust in its ability to influence the agenda. We must remember that this is the most important day in a parliamentary democracy. On this day, the public determines who will represent them in the four upcoming years and who will influence their fate. No citizen has the privilege of shirking the vote today," said Rivlin.
