On Tuesday morning, candidate Ofer Berkovitch allowed himself to smile. The first independent poll confirmed what he keeps saying to his supporters and to those still hesitating. His chance of winning this election are quite fair, ”although” he adds immediately, “There is still a lot of work to do. Nothing is final.”

At 8:30 a.m. on the terrace of Nocturno, a well-known culinary and cultural institution in city center near his home in Nahlaot, Berkovitch says he hasn’t yet had time for a coffee and a sandwich and orders both. The first issue he addresses is the possibility of a haredi mayor – if Yossi Daitch runs and obtains the majority of the votes.
