|The Knesset Speaker is elected by the plenum, as are his deputies.
The Speaker conducts the affairs of the Knesset, represents it externally,
preserves its dignity, the decorum of its sittings and the observance of its
Rules of Procedure. The Speaker, or one of his deputies, presides over the
sittings of the plenum, conducts them, puts resolutions to the vote and
determines the results of these votes, as well as those in the elections for
various state positions for which the plenum is responsible. In the absence
of the President
of the State from the country, the Speaker acts in his place.
The Speaker and Deputy Speakers together constitute the Knesset Presidium,
which approves the tabling of private
Members' bills and the urgency of
for the Agenda.
