Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday welcomed Asher Grunis as the new president of the Supreme Court, saying that under his leadership he was sure the court would continue to serve as an example of justice to the world.
"You have all the needed qualities to lead the justice system at this important juncture and I promise to grant you all the help that you will need," Netanyahu stated at the President's Residence ceremony.
Netanyahu emphasized the importance of maintaining the independence of the justice system in order that Israel remain a vital democracy.
