Likud MK Reuven Rivlin defeated Hatnua MK Meir Sheetrit 63 to 53 after advancing to the second round of presidential elections on Tuesday.

Rivlin, who won out in a field of five presidential candidates, will replace President Shimon Peres in the position when the 90-year-old steps down on July 27 when his seven year term comes to a close.
