Less than an hour after he landed, returning from an official visit to Ukraine, Jerusalem Affairs Minister and Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin showed up at the terrace of a café close to his Environment Ministry office to talk about his plans for Jerusalem. Following the findings of the recent poll published on Channel 2 news – and according to Elkin, also based on additional internal polls – he sees his chances to become Jerusalem’s next mayor as more than fair. But Elkin, known for his cautiousness, emphasizes that nothing is sure and lot of work has still to be done until that goal is reached. Without a jacket, but with long sleeves, sipping a milkshake, Elkin answered questions from In Jerusalem about his plans and vision.
