Meridor: Olmert Return to Politics Would not be Moral


Dan Meridor, Minister of Intelligence, called for former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert not to return to political life.

In an interview with Meet the Press on Channel 2, Meridor said that despite the legal ruling allowing Olmert to run in the upcoming elections, the must be moral norms that apply to Israeli politicians.

"I am not Olmert's adviser, but I think it's not appropriate. If he behaves rationally he will not run", said Meridor. "I do not think that a person in his condition should run for office, even if its permissible - I think it's not appropriate."
