Michael Oren is first candidate to join Kulanu

Michael Oren, the former ambassador to the United States, will run in the upcoming election on Moshe Kahlon’s Kulanu party list. Oren will not be second on the list after Kahlon but will still be one of Kulanu’s senior members. As a senior diplomat, Oren is expected to give Kulanu more credibility in foreign affairs.

Party leader Kahlon is seen as an economic guru after his cell phone reform bill was implemented and is hopeful that Oren will be able to give his party credibility on the diplomatic front as well.
