Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat Launches Reelection Campaign

With no challenger to face, latest polls show that only a major drama could threaten Barkat's reelection.

An uncharacteristic scene played out in Jerusalem on Saturday. Thousands of people showed up around the old train station at the end of Emek Refa'im Street, where dozens of retail stands, a cafe, a restaurant, a souvenir shop, a bicycle-rental store, a small museum and an activity area for children were in business.
