Jerusalem mayoral candidate Zeev Elkin said that he will endorse neither Moshe Lion nor Ofer Berkovitch in the second round of the city elections because he is the government's Jerusalem Affairs Minister, in an interview on Army Radio Thursday morning.

"Because this is the area of my ministry, it is wrong for me to intervene in the election campaign and say who I will vote for," he said.Elkin added that if the haredi candidate Yossi Daitch had united with him, they would have been elected already in the first round.
