Earlier today, Reuven Rivlin and his son Yoel expressed joy at Reuven Rivlin’s victory in the presidential elections today.

Shortly after winning the election, the 10th President of the State of Israel, Reuven Rivlin said that “the first thing I’ll do is thank my real friends. I do not want to abandon them. The will of the people was expressed in the vote.” In light of the murky relationship between him and Prime Minister Netanyahu, he said that he “was not mad at anybody.”

Minutes after his father’s election, Yoel Rivlin, the son of Reuven Rivlin said that he is “very excited. It was a lot of stress and I’m very happy for him. He worked hard and is a worthy person. I have no words.” According to him, the Rivlin family did not try to talk to Reuven. “He was very tense. Politics is something that gets to your soul, but he knows it and swims in this pool. He won the position he really wanted.”
