Azaria: Koolanu will fight for the middle class, push economic reform

In a far-reaching conversation, Koolanu candidate and Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Rachel Azaria met with members of The Jerusalem Post Wednesday afternoon to discuss how her nascent party will help Israel’s middle class overcome presently prohibitive costs of living. 

“I think the biggest challenge we’re facing today are social and economic issues,” said Azaria. “We see it in all the research, we see it in all the polls, we know it’s a major issue, and Koolanu is the only party that is very clear about the commitment to handling these issues.”

According to Azaria, Koolanu’s leader, former Likud welfare minister Moshe Kahlon, has worked diligently over the past several years to lower the cost of housing and groceries, and break entrenched banking monopolies.
