Voting ends in presidential election

Shas’s Ariel Atias, who missed his turn at the head of the alphabet, casts his ballot and the voting is closed in the presidential election. All that remains is for the slips to be counted and for Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to announce the result.

Army Radio reports screaming was heard from Rivlin’s Knesset office during the final vote, with the former frontrunner complaining to an unidentified MK, “But you promised to vote for me.”
