Former MK Avshalom (Abu) Vilan announced his intention to return to political life on Sunday, saying that he would seek one of the top three slots on the Meretz list before the upcoming general elections.

Vilan served as a Meretz MK from 1999 until 2009, when the party's mandates in the Knesset shrank.



Vilan is known for promoting the "One Home initiative," aimed at moving West Bank settlers to land inside the 1967 Green Line.
