President Reuven Rivlin expressed dismay over Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar's decision to take a break from politics, calling him a true leader and saying it was unfortunate that he was leaving when Israel was facing so many challenges.

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog said Sa'ar's departure expedited the crumbling of Likud. He said the fact that those who know Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu best were leaving was a sign of no-confidence in him.
