Rivlin to Herzog: ‘I am proud to pass baton to you’

President Reuven Rivlin congratulates his just-elected successor Isaac Herzog on his election.

“I have no doubt you will do an excellent job, and I am proud to pass the baton to you in a month,” he says.

He adds that the president’s residence serves as a symbol of Israeli democracy’s soul and is “a house of the people, of all the people.”
