Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion will sign a coalition agreement with Yehuda Ben Yosef, member of the Jerusalem faction, on Monday.

"A broad coalition is the means by which we can serve Jerusalem's residents in the best possible way,' said Lion.

"I will do everything possible to expand the ranks of the coalition as much as possible," added Lion.

As soon as the Lion returned to Israel, they met at the mayor's office and agreed to Ben Yosef's entry into Lion's coalition.


"The businesses in Jerusalem are at the heart of the city's economy and the growth," said Ben Yosef.
