Social Equality Minister Merav Cohen submitted her resignation from the parliament to Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin on Wednesday.

Wasserman Lande has served as an adviser to president Shimon Peres, a deputy ambassador at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo and the deputy director-general for international affairs at the Israeli Federation of Local Authorities.
She was born in Israel, lived in Cape Town, South Africa, for nine years as a child and attended the Herzliya High School. She has studied at Oxford University’s St. Anthony’s College and at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on a Wexner Fellowship.
