Bennett announces support of MK Rivlin for presidency



Economy Minister Naftali Bennett has announced he will support MK Reuven Rivlin for the position of Israel's president, a largely symbolic role.


In a message published on his Facebook page, Bennett wrote that "Rubi (Rivlin's nickname) is the natural candidate for the presidency." Bennett said he would recommend that his party members vote the same way. (Moran Azulay)
