Yuval Steinitz, a former minister and veteran Likud lawmaker, has decided to end his political career, telling Opposition Leader and Likud party chairman Benjamin Netanyahu that he will not run in this November’s Knesset election. Steinitz, a long-time Netanyahu loyalist who served in the Knesset for 23 years, has previously held the offices of Finance Minister, Intelligence Minister, and Energy Minister, and once chaired the Knesset’s powerful Foreign Affairs and Security Committee.

The 64-year-old MK announced his departure from politics Tuesday, saying: “After 23 years as a Member of Knesset – during which time I had the privilege of serving as Finance Minister, Intelligence Minister, Energy Minister, and chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Security Committee – I feel that the time has come for me and my family to breathe some fresh air.”
