Jerusalem selects a new Mayor in the 2nd round of municipal elections



The Israelis choose their mayor for dozens of places across the country, focusing mainly on Jerusalem's largest city.

Tuesday's vote marks the second round of municipal municipal elections in cities where the candidate did not receive at least 40% support on 30 October. The closest viewed surf is in Jerusalem, the declared capital of Israel and the pilgrimage site billions around the world.

The contest is a Moshe lion, a long-term political illumination supported by a large part of the country's head of state, a young earthly activist Ofer Berkovitch who exerts a progressive agenda against religious hardline lines.

Jerusalem is also the poorest city in Israel. Its diverse population is almost evenly distributed between Palestinian Arabs, Orthodox Jews and other Jewish inhabitants – both secular and observant.
