Reality star and Likud activist Moshe Passal is sworn in as an MK, replacing Public Diplomacy Minister Galit Distal Atbaryan, who quit Knesset under the so-called Norwegian Law.

The Norwegian Law lets a number of cabinet members and deputy ministers from each government party resign their Knesset seats while they hold their ministerial posts. If a minister later resigns from the cabinet, they automatically return to the Knesset, requiring the lawmaker who replaced them in parliament to give up their seat.

Passal is the 16th MK to enter parliament under the measure in the 25th Knesset.

Passal came to national attention as a participant in the 2018 Israeli version of Big Brother.
