‘I DESPERATELY want to see the good in Jerusalem’s new mayor [Moshe Lion, shown here after his win in the second round on November 13]... [and that] he will deliver on his campaign slogan of being a mayor for all residents.’.

Meanwhile, Lion has succeeded in forming a coalition, but is still lacking in majority support.
