After serving as mayor of Jerusalem for a decade, Barkat commented in the run-up to the nation’s April elections that Jerusalem must remain united under Israeli sovereignty.

Nir Barkat is not only the richest politician in Israel and a candidate on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party list, he also served as mayor of Jerusalem for 10 years.

He recently offered his opinion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, weighing in on U.S. President Donald Trump’s peace plan and the prospects of offering the Palestinians any portion of Jerusalem in exchange for peace.
