Kollek to Run on a Non-party Ticket

Download PDF for this date

Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek will run for his fourth term in office on an all-party list, and not on his Labor Party ticket. The Labor Party bureau in Jerusalem has approved Kollek’s all-party list. This is the first time that this becomes possible, due to an electoral reform in the municipal elections. The decision came following a party consensus that without Kollek as candidate, the party had no chance to win the elections. Kollek maintains that he needs a team of experts in the municipal council in order to run the city properly. The elections will take place in five months.
