Report: Olmert to Announce Tuesday if He's Running


Former prime minister Ehud Olmert is expected to announce, Tuesday, whether he is running for the Knesset in the upcoming elections, according to a Monday-morning report in the Yisrael Hayom daily.

Olmert is scheduled to return, Tuesday, from a trip to the United States, where he has hinted at a return to politics. One apparent condition for his candidacy was the victory of Barack Obama in the U.S. presidential election. The former Kadima party chief's final determining factor is what polls say about his chances.
