Former prime minister Ehud Olmert refuted reports that he had already announced his candidacy for prime minister in the next general election in an interview with The Jerusalem Post behind the scenes at the Post’s conference in New York on Sunday.

Haaretz reported last week that Olmert had made such a declaration twice in a speech to Israeli businessmen two weeks ago at the London headquarters of the investment bank Goldman Sachs.“I have never given up my political aspirations but I did not announce anything. All I said in London was that I did not disappear from public life. I said they will hear from me and about me, and some took that as if I was already announcing. But it is far too early,” Olmert said.
