Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's former number two, Gidon Sa'ar, will be announcing his return to politics Monday night at a pre-Passover toast for Likud activists in Acre.

Word that Sa'ar will be making the announcement went out to Likud groups on social media on Monday morning though he has not confirmed it himself.
Politicians from across the political spectrum have already congratulated Sa'ar as if the decision is fact. He quit his post as interior minister in September 2015 and announced that he wanted to spend more time with his family. However, the move was seen as him leaving politics temporarily because he could no longer work with Netanyahu.

A Jerusalem Post poll published some two weeks ago indicated that the public was very much in favor of Sa'ar returning to politics and showed that participants in the poll were more interested in seeing Sa'ar in a leading role than they were in seeing former IDF chiefs of staff Benny Gantz or Gabi Ashkenazi assume a role in politics.
