Nobel Peace Prize winner Lord David Trimble on Tuesday nominated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince.
Lord Trimble, the First Minister of Northern Ireland, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 together with John Hume for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland.
In accordance with the rules of the Nobel Prize Committee, since Trimble is the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, his decision to submit Netanyahu’s candidacy will lead the committee to discuss the issue.
