Shama-Hacohen says ready to fill Rivlin’s seat

Carmel Shama-Hacohen, the Likud party member who will fill Reuven Rivlin’s seat once he’s inaugurated as president, says he is returning to the Knesset with mixed feelings, but that he’s prepared for the task.

So after a rocky presidential campaign, with a candidate dropping out at the last minute because of a police investigation, Rivlin has been elected Israel’s 10th president.
