Supreme Court Justice Uzi Vogelman has reportedly decided he will waive his right to become head of the court when Supreme Court President Justice Esther Hayut retires next year.

According to the Ynet news site, Vogelman believes that there is no point in him only fulfilling the role for one year before he himself retires, given the wide range of managerial tasks and complex handover involved in the position.

Vogelman will continue to serve on the court, the report says.

The report says it appears that Justice Isaac Amit will instead be appointed president of the court.
