Former Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat running for Likud leader

Likud MK Nir Barkat announced Thursday that he will run for Likud leader after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leaves the post.
In an interview with Yediot Aharonot, Barkat joined the contest that already officially includes MK Gideon Sa'ar and is expected to include many candidates.
"I will defeat Gideon Sa'ar," Barkat said.
At a well attended event for Likud activists a week ago, Barkat said he was not in a hurry to advance politically and unveiled an autobiography called Marathon Runner.
