Peres to Leave Politics After Term Ends
JNS.org –Israel President Shimon Peres does not intend to remain in politics after completing his current term in 2014.
“I have no such plans [to remain in politics after my term ends],” Peres told Israel Hayom during a trip to Mexico. “I plan to serve the country in informal ways. I think that politics today are in need of greater goodwill, or at least better organization. I will contribute what I can. I have no plans to represent a party.”
