New MK’s Surrounded by Family at Knesset Swearing In Ceremony
by News Editor
Times of Israel – At 27, Stav Shaffir might be the new Knesset’s youngest member, but she knows how to act like a veteran politician.
During the fancy Knesset reception for the incoming parliamentarians on Tuesday before the official swearing-in ceremony, Shaffir (Labor) spots her grandparents, who have just arrived. She runs over to them, gives them a quick hug, and then pulls them into the crowd after her, in search of a TV crew. Finding a cameraman, she gives the grandparents considerably longer hugs. Nice footage for the next family video, sure, but it also made her look sweet and likable on TV.
