Israel is set to receive its ninth president Sunday evening, when Shimon Peres is sworn in at a ceremony at the Knesset (parliament) in Jerusalem.

Peres, 83, was elected president one month ago in a vote among the 120 Knesset members. He replaces Moshe Katsav, who quit the presidency at the end of last month, after reaching a plea-bargain after being accused of a host of sexual misconduct charges.
