They are nominated by Lord David Trimble of Northern Ireland for their path-breaking peace deal that opened the door for Israel to normalize ties with its Arab neighbors.
“Pursuant to the rules of the Nobel Prize Committee, since Lord Trimble is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, his decision to submit Prime Minister Netanyahu's candidacy will lead the committee to discuss the issue,” the Prime Minister's Office said.
Prior to Trimble’s nomination, Netanyahu’s name had already been submitted at least twice for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
In September Netanyahu was nominated by Italian lawmaker Paolo Grimoldi and then by Finish parliamentarian Vilhelm Junilla. The latter nomination also included Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
As we reported earlier, three Belarus opposition members have been nominated for 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
Norwegian MP, Geir Toskedal nominated Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya, Maria Kolesnikova, and Veronika Tsepkalo "for their struggle for fair elections and for inspiring peaceful opposition against the illegitimate regime in Belarus".
