In Jerusalem, Mayor Nir Barkat won 51.11 per cent of the votes while Moshe Leon took 45.32 per cent.
Following his win, Barkat visited the Western Wall and addressed the elections. “We had wall-to-wall support, certainly in the traditionalist sector and even in considerable parts of the haredi sector. It was not an easy campaign but the bottom line is that Jerusalemites gave us a mandate to lead Jerusalem for another five years and make it attractive for young folk and businessmen
We should praise Jesus the Messiah for Nir Barkat. He is a committed Zionist, who tirelessly work for a united Jerusalem.
I pray that the Messiah will keep Him safe from deception, and never give up this important fight.
Jerusalem is the capital of one nation, and this nation is the state of Israel. The city must never be divided, but remain united.
May the Messiah also have mercy on Barkat, so the mayor will find salvation. Amen.
