The High Court of Justice rejects a petition seeking to block President Isaac Herzog’s appointment of Naor Ihia as his spokesman.

Ihia until recently served as former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political spokesperson and was the flack for the ex-premier’s Likud party.

The justices order the group that filed the petition to pay NIS 5,000 in court fees.
