Knesset’s newest member to be sworn in tomorrow

Amir Ohana will be sworn in tomorrow evening as the Knesset’s newest member, his spokesperson announces.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other members of Israel’s parliament will take part in the ceremony, which is to take place in the Knesset at 6 p.m.

Ohana will take over for former deputy prime minister Silvan Shalom, who stepped down last week amid numerous sexual harassment allegations. (Update: The allegations against Shalom were not substantiated and a police investigation was subsequently closed.)
