JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Reuven Rivlin, a far-right member of Israel's ruling Likud, was on Tuesday elected by parliament to be the nation's 10th president when Shimon Peres steps down in July, the speaker said.

Announcing the results of a run-off vote, parliamentary speaker Yuli Edelstein said Rivlin had defeated his centrist challenger Meir Sheetrit by 63 votes to 53 in a secret ballot of the Knesset's 120 MPs.
