Kahlon says he’ll retire from politics when new government sworn in

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon officially announces he will be leaving politics when a new government is sworn in.

Kahlon had been expected to step down and is no longer a Knesset member, after not running in the March 2 elections.

He was a long time Likud lawmaker before going his own way and heading the Kulanu party in the 2015 elections, after which he became finance minister. Kulanu was absorbed into Likud after a poor showing in the first of three elections over the past year.
