President Reuven Rivlin votes in Jerusalem, calling on the public to cast their ballots and expressing concern for Israel’s democracy caused by the extended political crisis.

“I am voting for the last time as president, but also as a concerned citizen,” says Rivlin, whose term ends in the summer. “A fourth election [in two years] harms the public trust.”
