Although the President of Israel is the country's head of state, the President's powers are largely ceremonial; the Prime Minister holds most of the real power. The current Prime Minister is Benjamin Netanyahu of Likud, the ninth person to hold the position (excluding caretakers).
In this regard, what is the difference between the president and the prime minister?
For example, a president is usually considered a head of state, whereas a prime minister is usually a head of government. As a head of government, a prime minister usually leads the operations of the government. Another major difference is how a person gets to be either president or prime minister.
Can you have a president and a monarch?
Countries typically have just one head of state, meaning that it's not normally possible to have both a monarch and a president. (The prime minister is the head of government, and so can co-exist with either a monarch, as in the UK, or a president, as in France.)
