Rebellious Yesh Atid MK Adi Kol announced Tuesday night that she is leaving politics in order to return to her work in public education.

Kol said she was thankful for her two years in the Knesset in which she chaired the Knesset's Public Petitions Committee.

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid suspended Kol last year for violating faction discipline by abstaining on a vote that raised the electoral threshold. She was not expected to be given a realistic slot on the Yesh Atid list for the March 17 election.  

Eshkol Regional Council mayor Haim Yelin has joined Yesh Atid and is expected to be ranked high on the party's list.

Sources close to Lapid said he would not announce the placement of candidates on the party's list until close to the January 29 deadline.
