Penina Tamanu-Shata on Monday evening was sworn in as a member of Knesset, representing the Yesh Atid party. Tamanu-Shata, who also served as an MK in the 19th Knesset, replaces Yaakov Perry who last week announced his resignation from the Knesset in the wake of an investigative report about him which aired on Channel 12's “Uvda” program. “I felt the need to create a dialogue and discourse that cuts across sectors of society, that is centered on the unity of the people and acceptance of the other. “I will do it as best as I can with a deeper understanding than in the past that there are unique tools here to lead a different culture and reality and we must not take this for granted. Because this is our moral and public duty,” concluded Tamanu-Shata.
