Iman Khatib-Yasin of the coalition’s Ra’am party is sworn in as a member of Knesset, filling MK Said al-Harumi’s seat following his death from a heart attack last week.

Khatib-Yasin first entered the Knesset after elections in March 2020, becoming the first-hijab wearing MK. She was placed on fifth on Ra’am’s electoral slate ahead of the March 2021 elections, but with the Islamist party picking up only four seats, she did not return to parliament then.
