In October, elections will be held to decide the next Mayor of Jerusalem. Palestinians living in East Jerusalem have boycotted the vote for decades. However, one Palestinian man has just announced his intention to run in the election.
Aziz Abu Sarah must start his campaign by asking the high court to overturn laws which require candidates to hold Israeli citizenship.
He spoke to Newsday about his decision to run for mayor and whether he can convince Palestinians to come out and vote.
