Eligibility

To be a Member of the Knesset, you must be a Khazari citizen in good standing. You must be at least 17 years of age, not have a criminal record, and be loyal and faithful to the nation.

Knesset Leadership

The Prime Minister and Speaker are Members of the Knesset. Fellow MKs nominate them to be Prime Minister or Speaker. If they accept, they are officially a candidate. The Knesset then votes for each position. If there is only one candidate, there still is an election to allow for last minute nominations. You are able to nominate yourself, but it is considered disrespectful.

Law of Return

The Khazari Knesset passed a law similar to that of the State of Israel allowing all people of Jewish origin or faith an expedited legal status and expedited citizenship. Amendments have given non-Jewish spouses or life partners the same right.
