Avi Himi chosen to chair Israel Bar Association instead of disgraced Efi Nave

Attorney Avi Himi is elected acting chairman of the Israel Bar Association until it holds elections on June 18.

Himi replaces the previous chairman Efi Nave, who resigned last month after suspicions that he tried to appoint and promote judges in exchange for sexual favors.

Himi is elected by the Bar Association’s national council, with 24 supporting him and 19 voting for his rival Uri Keinan, who had been interim chairman since Nave’s departure.
