Nir Hefetz, who resigned from his post as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's chief spokesman on Monday night, said Tuesday that he originally entered the office with the intention of staying for a limited time of two years and decided to leave early to work in the private sector.

"The position I filled for a year-and-a-half is one of the most tiring positions in the field of communications and in the Prime Minister's Bureau," said Hefetz in an interview with Army Radio. "I had the opportunity to deal with interesting subjects which helped me progress and develop, but the job was very difficult and busy. My leaving was mutually agreed upon with Netanyahu."
