Former MK Shama-Hacohen to Run for Mayor of Ramat Gan


Former Likud Knesset member Carmel Shama-Hacohen has announced that he will run for mayor of the city of Ramat Gan, according to a Monday morning report in the Yisrael Hayom newspaper.

The city’s current mayor, Zvi Bar, has served continuously since 1988 and earlier this month was indicted on suspicion of accepting bribes from contractors. Shama-Hacohen was placed in the 32nd spot on the Likud Beytenu Knesset list, and therefore did not enter the 19th Knesset.
