Deputy Knesset Speaker, MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud), has published a letter of support for the Likud / Yisrael Beytenu candidate for the mayorship of Jerusalem, Moshe Lion.

"Moshe Lion is a man of action with rich and successful managerial experience, as well as being man of good works, who will certainly know how to run the city properly and take it forward.”

Lion, added Feiglin, “is a candidate who combines practical experience with a vision that is connected to the roots of Jewish tradition and culture. He is the most fitting candidate for running the city that is the center of the world of Jewish belief.”

Numerous politicians from Likud / Yisrael Beytenu have endorsed Lion, whose primary patrons are Ysrael Beytenu chief MK Avigdor Lieberman and Shas chief MK Aryeh Deri. The endorsers include Ministers Saar, Erdan, Katz, Steintz, Landau, Shalom and Aharonovich, as well as MKs Elkin, Danon, Gamliel, Kirshenbaum and others.
