Hotovely: No Reason to Extend Peres' Tenure

MK Tzipi Hotovely commented on her Facebook page today (Tuesday) regarding the issue of extending Shimon Peres' tenure as President to another term.

"According to the law, Mr. Peres will complete his term of tenure in a few months," the MK wrote.

"There is no reason to extend his (Peres') tenure, especially as there are other well-deserving candidates who would serve.  Mr. Peres has functioned in a variety of roles, and has established his own standing in the international community.  He can continue to work on behalf of Israel following his retirement," Hotovely noted.
