Regional Cooperation Minister Esawi Frej tells Army Radio that he hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll run again in the next election slated to take place this fall.

Frej has been a longtime member of the Meretz party and a devoted member of the government who sought to prevent its downfall. However, he also suffered a stroke earlier this year, which may be influencing his decision-making process.
