Israel's 21st Knesset was sworn in this week, with the 120 lawmakers elected in the country's April 9th national elections taking the oath of office. President Reuven Rivlin in a speech at the first plenum session called upon members to set aside political differences raised in the contentious election campaign and unite to serve the Israeli public.

As the new Knesset set to the task of its first parliamentary activities, KAN's Naomi Segal spoke with Dr. Chen Friedberg, a research fellow at the Israel Democracy Institute and a senior lecturer at Ariel University, about what the new Knesset looks like and what are some of the challenges ahead.
