Former mayor Uri Lupolianski held a news conference, Monday, to deny reports that he is running for his old seat. He told reporters, "Regarding the reports which, I heard, were while I was at a conference of non-governmental organizations in Switzerland, I am not connected to these reports, directly or indirectly."
Lupolianski added, "You know I saw the Jerusalem Mayor's office as a significant challenge. I tried to bring about unity among the communities and different sectors. I did it for a term, when everyone knew that I had a rotation agreement."
