Former Likud minister Moshe Kahlon on Tuesday suggested that he would be returning to politics after the current security situation calms down.
Asked if he would return to the political arena after he decided to take a break and not run for the 19th Knesset in late 2012, Kahlon said he had decided to form "a political framework, but definitely not at this time."
Speaking at the Israeli Conference on Medicine at the Jerusalem Convention Center, he said that he had met with soldiers and stressed the importance of keeping the army out of politics.
He criticized politicians in general for "a severe lack of decision-making, an inability to implement decisions and a lack of leadership."
