Zionist Union co-leaders Issac Herzog and Tzipi Livni expressed sorrow and pain Monday at the news that Senior Citizens Minister Uri Orbach had passed away.

"Uri was a wonderful character, who brought together all branches of Zionism and all of the Israelis. He was a public figure in the full sense of the term, who loved everyone," the pair said in a statement.

Orbach brought wit and humor to the Knesset alongside real and aggressive ideology, the statement added.
