Former prime minister Ehud Olmert will not return to politics until a verdict is reached in the Holyland trial, his spokesman Jacob Galanti told Israel Radio on Thursday.

Olmert was cleared of major corruption charges in the Rishon Tours affair and the Talansky affair on Tuesday, although he was convicted of breach of trust.

The trial over the Holyland affair may continue well past the elections scheduled for October, 2013.
