Acting Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar
said Tuesday that he hopes to retain the same role in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's
Speaking at an education conference held at a Dead Sea resort, Sa'ar said that "I would like to continue on as the education minister. In Israel's political reality…
I see it as more than 'just' an office. It's a calling. It's a mission - it's the national mission."
Sa'ar, who topped the Likud
primaries, added that "To me, education is the most important role I know. Education is our future.
"I believe that there is great importance to continuity, especially in the field of education; and that we have to continue on the path we have blazed in this past term, which has done great things for the education system in Israel.
"Make no mistake," he told the forum, "I've also said all of this clear to the prime minister."
