Former Shas chairman Eli Yishai is unlikely to run against incumbent Nir Barkat in the October 22 Jerusalem mayoral election, Yishai said in closed conversations with confidants from his vacation site in northern Israel Monday.
The Maariv newspaper reported that Yishai had said privately that he would "go for the job with full force" and that he believed he could obtain the support of all the religious factions in Jerusalem.
