Rivlin thanks ‘true friends’ for presidential win

Speaking to Channel 2 after his victory, President-elect Reuven Rivlin says thanks all of his “true friends” for helping him win the office. He is asked whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had congratulated him yet, but the phone call was dropped.

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog congratulates Reuven Rivlin on his victory and says he has the ability to be a unifying person for Israel. Hatnua party leader Tzipi Livni, whose candidate Meir Sheetrit lost, congratulates him as well.

Likud MK Miri Regev tells the Knesset Channel that despite Netanyahu’s efforts to prevent Rivlin from winning the presidency, Rivlin won.
