Stas Misezhnikov Not Running for Knesset

Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov announced, Tuesday morning, that he is not running for re-election to the Knesset on the Yisrael Beytenu ticket. Misezhnikov's personal behavior has been called into question in recent months.

On Monday evening, Member of Knesset Anastassia Michaeli made a similar announcement, confirming speculation about her exit after she splashed water on an Arab Knesset member and made remarks about programming for homosexuals on Israeli television.

Yisrael Beytenu is scheduled to announce its candidate's list Tuesday.
