Canadian-born MK Sharren Haskel (Likud) was sworn in to the Knesset on Wednesday, replacing Minister Danny Danon who will be leaving the Knesset after being appointed Israel’s Ambassador at the UN.
Haskel was elected in the primaries to the 31st spot on the Likud party list.
“The past few months have once again brought to the fore the rifts in the Israeli society, and the fight for the state’s character has turned violent and harsh,” Haskel said after her swear-in. “In days like these, the public looks to its representatives here in this House. This is a great responsibility that has been placed on my shoulders.”
