Canadian immigrant Dan Illouz is slated to enter the Knesset after beating out MK Gadi Yevarkan and several others for the spot on the Likud slate reserved for immigrants in yesterday’s party primaries.

He will be placed at No. 33 on the list, which will likely be among the last spots to make it into the Knesset, according to recent polling.

“I will promote the values of the nationalist and liberal camp[s] in the Knesset,” he tweets. “I will be a faithful messenger.”
