Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau denied Thursday that he was running for president as media sources had reported earlier. "I am in no way considering the issue," the rabbi said during an interview in the morning radio program, "Non-stop Radio." Sources close to Rabbi Lau said afterwards, however, that while the rabbi cannot officially say he is running until President Moshe Katsav's fate has been decided, the rabbi has, in fact, decided to run and will announce his candidacy only then.
