Huldai says he’ll resign as Tel Aviv mayor once he becomes an MK

The Israelis party leader Ron Huldai says he’ll step down as Tel Aviv mayor once he’s sworn in as a Knesset member.

“I’ve already come to terms with the fact that [I’m] finished with [that] chapter in my life,” he says in an interview with Channel 12 news.

Huldai says he won’t resign as mayor before then because “problems are already starting in the management of the city, it’s impossible to hold elections within elections,” referring to the race that would be held to replace him.
