Tel Aviv-Yafo Mayor Ron Huldai announced on Sunday that he will once again run for mayor in next year's municipal elections.

Huldai, who has served as mayor of Tel Aviv for 24 years, announced that this will be the last time he will run for office. If he is elected for another term, Huldai will have served as mayor for a total of about 30 years.

In an interview on journalist Nadav Perry’s podcast, Huldai was asked about the elections to the 25th Knesset, and claimed, "I have no one to vote for." On Prime Minister Yair Lapid, he said, "He is leadership material." On today's Labor Party, Huldai said it was not his home.

Before the elections to the 24th Knesset, Huldai formed his own party, called "The Israelis," to which he added former Finance Minister Avi Nissenkorn.

However, Huldai dropped out of the race before the election after he failed to gain momentum in polls, some of which showed his party not passing the electoral threshold.
