Long after the other candidates threw their hats into the ring, Deputy Mayor Yossi Daitch, 50, finally officially launched his campaign, under the slogan “Yossi Daitch, a Jerusalemite with a soul” (sounds better in Hebrew) at the Ramada Hotel, in the midst of Hol Hamoed Sukkot.

After a presentation of the campaign and its slogans, Daitch entered and gave a speech rooted in his vision that a hard-working mayor focused on building and sanitation is the best answer for the city. He emphasized the urgent need to build new neighborhoods in the city for all population sectors, underlining that the lack of affordable housing is a main reason for the exodus of the young and young families. After expressing his wishes for the success of the prime minister at the annual convention of the United Nations, Daitch pointed out that his first mission would be to put an end to the freezing of construction in the city, which is, according to him, decided at the highest levels of government.
