Swearing-in ceremony for new Knesset begins

The pomp and circumstance begins at the Knesset as President Reuven Rivlin makes his entrance to the Knesset grounds, accompanied by an honor guard on horseback and the IDF military band.

He is greeted by Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, Knesset Secretary General Yardena Muller Horovitz and 6th grade students from the Modiin Ariel elementary school.

The president will place a wreath on the Knesset’s monument for fallen soldiers before meeting privately with Edelstein and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then leading the 120 MKs to the plenum for their first official session.
