Netanyahu rival shocks Israel with sudden plan to quit cabinet

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s interior minister, seen as a rival and potential successor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, announced on Wednesday he was quitting the government, in a move that stunned the political right.

Gideon Sa’ar, 47, widely viewed as a favorite to one day challenge Netanyahu for the leadership of the ruling Likud, told party faithful that he would step down from both the cabinet and parliament after the Jewish New Year later this month.
