On November 30, 2018, Jerusalemites will elect a new mayor. While it is still not clear whether the present mayor, Nir Barkat, will decide to run for a third time or continue his way toward the national field to join the next government, there are already other candidates. With the exception of one, all the others have made it clear – on or off the record – that they will not run if Barkat runs again.For now, there are five official candidates and two additional ones still sitting on the fence – not including Barkat, who holds the joker card in the game.
