A proposed cooling-off period for Presidents before they can enter politics will not apply to the incumbent President Yitzhak Navon under draft legislation being prepared by members of the Likud Knesset faction. A majority of the faction executive opposed the notion that the cooling-off law apply to Navon. They feared this might be seen by the public as an expression of Likud’s fear of Navon as a political rival.
