Likud may lose Rivlin's Knesset seat to Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu
President-elect Rivlin’s replacement may leave the Knesset to become an ambassador, giving Likud the same number of Knesset seats as Lapid's Yesh Atid.
MK Carmel Shama-Hacohen, who assumed President-elect Reuven Rivlin’s Knesset seat on Tuesday, could be appointed Israel’s ambassador to OECD-UNESCO and the European Council in as soon as two weeks, costing his Likud party the seat.
