Former communications minister Moshe Kahlon told Army Radio on Thursday that he wants to return to the political arena in the coming elections.

In an interview, Kahlon stated that although he had said he wasn't prepared to serve in a position for the coming term, he didn't mean to say that.

"If there were elections tomorrow, my [current] commitments would be over tomorrow."

Regarding Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's recent announcement that he would not keep his promise to appoint Kahlon as chairman of the Israel Lands Authority, Kahlon confirmed the announcement, saying the problem was defined as a "coalition issue."
