Several government ministers are taking the opportunity to praise Prime Minister Naftali Bennett following the latter’s decision not to run in the upcoming election following one year in office.

“”Naftali Bennett is an Israeli patriot,” tweets Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar. “He was a good prime minister who filled the position in a statesmanly fashion. We worked in full cooperation on behalf of Israel and its citizens. I am convinced that he will return to serve the country in the future. Naftali, thank you and good luck!”

“For the past year, I have worked very closely with Prime Minister Bennett. There were disagreements and political matters, but I discovered a hard-working and matter-of-fact person who really cares about the public. His positions are not my positions and that is clear, but I have great appreciation for him. Israel has earned a year of good government, much to its credit,” says Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz
