Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz officially threw in his hat for the next mayoral race in Tel Aviv, announcing at a press conference in Neve Tzedek on Monday that he will run for the seat against 15-year incumbent Ron Huldai when the city goes to the ballot boxes in October.

Making his official announcement, Horowitz spoke of his city as a wealthy and unique metropolis facing a daunting series of problems related to housing and inequalities in wealth and infrastructure. He also addressed the ongoing tension between residents of south Tel Aviv and the more than 50,000 African migrants who have made the southern neighborhoods of the city their home in recent years, saying “this is a powder keg. You don't have to be an expert to know that the situation can not go on like this.”
