Former Intel executive vice president Dadi (David) Perlmutter explains why he wants to go from running a 50 billion dollar company to passing bills in the Knesset. Continuing his “Meet the Candidate” series, Gil Hoffman speaks to Perlmutter, who is second on the Gesher list of MK Orly Levy-Abecassis.
Perlmutter admits he is taking a risk by running in a party that may not cross the electoral threshold, but he says he believes in her leadership. He succeeded in his investment in Mellanox, the multinational supplier of computer networking products that was sold for 6.9 billion dollars on Monday.
The show concludes with Hoffman explaining the political impact of new legal developments in Prime Minister Benjamin Netayahu’s criminal cases.
