With Danny Danon set to depart for New York to represent Israel as the next ambassador to the United Nations, the public will soon be introduced to a fresh face from the Likud list that will ascend to the parliament – Sharren Haskel.
Born in Canada, Haskel, who becomes a parliamentarian by virtue of her being No. 31 on the Likud list, served in the Border Police during her military service. Just 31 years of age, Haskel is a veterinarian by trade as well as a former debate champion.
Haskel was on a presumably nerve-wracking wait in recent weeks in anticipation of her entry to the Knesset as lawmakers discussed the so-called "Norwegian Law."
