Former tourism minister and Yesh Atid MK Yoel Razvozov announces he is quitting politics.

Razvozov sends a letter to Lapid, informing him of his decision to take a break from public life.

“After 15 years as a representative of the public, in which I have served as tourism minister in the government of Israel, as a member of Knesset and as head of the immigration and absorption committee — and before that as a member of the Netanya city council — at the end of the month I will resign from the Knesset,” he writes.

Razvozov was a successful judoka in the past, representing Israel at the European Championships, the World Championships and the Olympics, and was known as a standout in the former government for his good looks and muscular physique.
