The Knesset on Monday voted to install Jerusalem District Court Judge Yosef Shapira as the new state comptroller.
Voting went into a run-off round after the required majority of 61 votes was not achieved by any of the three candidates, which also included the president of the Organization of Internal Auditors and deputy president of the Supreme Court.
