Alex Miller (Hebrew: אלכס מילר‎, born 4 April 1977) is an Israeli politician who serves as a member of the Knesset for Yisrael Beiteinu.

Biography[edit]

Born in Moscow, Soviet Union (now Russia), Miller made aliyah to Israel on 29 January 1992. He gained a BA in education with a specialization in electronics.

For the 2006 Knesset elections he was placed tenth on the Yisrael Beiteinu list,[1] and became a Knesset member when the party won 11 seats. During his first term he chaired the subcommittee for alternative energy sources.[2]

Moved down to fifteenth on the party's list for the 2009 elections,[3] Miller barely retained his seat as Yisrael Beitenu won 15 seats. For the 2013 elections he was placed 33rd on the joint Likud Yisrael Beiteinu list,[4] and lost his seat as the alliance won only 31 seats. However, he returned to the Knesset on 6 August 2014 as a replacement for Carmel Shama,[5] who resigned after becoming Israel's envoy to the OECD.[6]

Miller currently lives in the Israeli settlement of Ariel and is married with one child.[2]
