MKs Dalia Itzik and Yariv Levin nominated Judge Yosef Shapira for the position of state comptroller Wednesday, submitting his nomination alongside the signatures of 70 Knesset members.

Shapira, a judge in the Jerusalem District Court, would replace outgoing Comptroller Micha Lindesntrauss, whose 7-year term ends July 3.

The Knesset will vote on the replacement in a secret ballot on May 14.
