Running for nothing

Politics is a sphere not fit for everybody, and sometimes even political battle veterans may be surprised. That is what happened last week following publication of an announcement stating that Mayor Nir Barkat is planning to leave Safra Square sooner than predicted and will be replaced by Zvika Cohen, a Shas member on the city council, until the 2018 election. This information appeared exclusively in last Friday’s edition of Hashavua, a local haredi Sephardi newspaper owned and edited by Haim Cohen, a former supporter of Shas leader MK Arye Deri.
