Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced appointments on Tuesday for his bureau chief of staff, spokesperson and political adviser.

Tal Gan-Zvi, who has been accompanying Bennett since his entry into national politics in 2012, is the premier’s new spokesperson, according to Ynet. Gan-Zvi is considered Bennett’s confidant; he conducted coalitionary negotiations on behalf of Bennett’s Yamina Party.

“Thank you to everyone for the support and warm words, and thank you to the prime minister for the faith,” Meir tweeted on Tuesday. “You know about the big challenges, but it is important that you know that the atmosphere here is very good.”
