Herzog has been a Member of Knesset since 2003. From 2013 till July 2017 he was leader of HaAvoda. From 2015 till July 2017 he was also leader of HaMahaneh HaTziyoni ("The Zionist Union"), together with Tzipi Livni of HaTnu'a (still leading).

He hold several government positions:
- minister of Housing and Construction in 2005
- minister of Tourism in 2006-2007
- minister of Diaspora, Society and the Fight against Antisemitism in 2007-2009
