The main election season has drawn to a close and as we move into the “sudden death” final round, we pause to look back at the path that brought us here.

The campaign preseason kicked off a year ago. The first banners and posters that appeared were those of candidate Avi Salman, who was off and running long before exiting Mayor Nir Barkat officially announced his decision to quit Safra Square. It took a long time for the other candidates to swing into noticeable action. The pace picked up on November 3 of last year when Ofer Berkovitch (Hitorerut) put an end to growing rumors, resigned from his position as deputy mayor and announced his candidacy.
