The popular Shaked, who would reportedly have liked to join the Likud party but is disliked by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, makes the comment at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference.

“After the Netanyahu era, I don’t rule out a run for prime minister,” the former justice minister says. “But you can never guess what will happen in Israeli politics.”
