No elections please - poll
Dalia Dorner also disclosed her wealth, but Meir Sheetrit refused.
Presidential candidate MK Ruby Rivlin (Likud) has published his capital statement. He owns a four-room apartment he bought in 1973 for NIS 220,000, and which is currently worth NIS 3 million. He owns no other property.
Rivlin also declared an investment portfolio worth NIS 300,000, a study fund, insurance, and a provident fund worth NIS 450,000, and a car worth NIS 60,000. His net salary as an MK is NIS 25,000 a month, and his net pension from his service as a minister is another NIS 1,000, and his pension from a law firm is a net NIS 600,000. Rivlin, 75, receives an old-age pension of NIS 2,500 a month.
"Every elected official should stand fully exposed before the public and disclose his income and assets, in order to prevent gossip and speculation about his independence and free of influence," said Rivlin.
MK Meir Sheetrit (Hatnua) has refused to declare his private wealth. "Every year, MK Meir Sheetrit issues a capital declaration. During his years as a minister, he also submitted reports to the State Comptroller, and he will continue to file full details to all the authorized agencies pursuant to the law," said his office.
Judge Emeritus Dalia Dorner also disclosed her personal wealth. Her advisers said that all her income comes from her salary as employee of the IDF and justice system. Her pension as an IDF officer and former judge totals NIS 35,000 a month, she drives a 2004 Volvo, and owns a four-room apartment in Jerusalem's Beit Hakerem neighborhood, where she has lived since 1974.
