Hasson or Shama-Hacohen on deck for Knesset seat

Reuven Rivlin and Meir Sheetrit are both serving MKs, which means that whichever candidate wins in the runoff round of the presidential election will have to be replaced.

The next person in line in the Likud party list is Carmel Shama-Hacohen, who served as an MK in the last Knesset. He would replace Rivlin should the veteran Likudnik be elected president in the coming hours.

The Hatnua party would be sending former Kadima MK Yoel Hasson to the Knesset if its MK, Sheetrit, wins in the runoff.
