Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office issued a statement Tuesday saying he had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize following the normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan, after the premier had already been nominated for the award multiple times in recent months.

“Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Lord David Trimble today nominated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Nobel Peace Prize, together with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed [Al Nahyan], Abu Dhabi’s crown prince,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.

Trimble was the first first minister of Northern Ireland — the head of its government — from 1998 to 2002, and in 1998 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with John Hume for their efforts to peacefully resolve the conflict there.

“In accordance with the Nobel Prize rules, since Trimble is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, his decision to nominate Prime Minister Netanyahu will lead the committee to discuss the matter,” the statement added.

The winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize — selected by a five-member committee appointed by the Norwegian parliament — will not be announced until October of next year.
