Jerusalem (JTA) — Senior
Likud activists have launch-
ed a campaign to nominate
former Foreign Minister
David Levy as the party's
candidate for the presidency,
once President Chaim Her-
zog concludes his term of of
next year.
In an interesting twist, the
group backing Mr. Levy is
headed by Yisrael Katz, a
former aide of Ariel Sharon,
a political rival of Levy's.
The group sent letters last
week proposing the idea to
members of Likud's central
committee.
Mr. Levy himself has not
officially reacted to the pro-
posal, but the fact that heads
of his camp, such as Yavneh
Mayor Yehuda Brus, de-
scribed Mr. Levy as the right
candidate for the job, was
interpreted as an indication
that he would not say no.
According to the Levy
lobby, he was the right per-
son for the job because he
symbolized a national con-
sensus, as the man who can
bridge communal gaps. Mr.
Levy is Sephardi in a leader-
ship circle dominated by
Ashkenazim and is con-
sidered a member of Likud's
more dovish camp.

Mr. Levy's supporters
argue that their candidate
could enjoy the support of
Labor, the religious parties
and even the Arab parties
and Meretz. They recalled
that Mr. Herzog, a member
of Labor's more hawkish
camp, was elected to office in
1983 years ago thanks to the
support of the right.
Another surprising can-
didacy that is reportedly be-
ing considered is that of
Brig. Gen. (Res.) Nahman
Shai, who is being proposed
as Labor's candidate for
mayor of Jerusalem, once
Teddy Kollek retires. Gen.
Shai won fame serving as
army spokesman during the
Persian Gulf War.
Mr. Kollek himself is not
too happy with the idea. He
said that although he held
Gen. Shai in esteem, he
believed that his candidacy
should be considered only
after Gen. Shai acquired
several years of municipal
experience. Mr. Kollek's
own candidate is Amos Mar-
Haim, the present deputy
mayor.
The Likud is considering
running former Health Min-
ister Ehud Olmert as its
candidate for the mayoralty.

Mandela Welcomed
In Jewish Suburb

Johannesburg (JTA) —
African National Congress
President Nelson Mandela
was given a sweet welcome
to his new home in
Houghton, an upscale Jew-
ish suburb here.
Mr. Mandela's new
neighbor, member of
Parliament Tony Leon of the
Democratic Party, brought a
gift of chocolate cake, which
he left with a member of the
household staff in Mandela's
absence.
"I felt it WaS a nice touch,"
said Mr. Leon, a Jew who
represents a district com-
prising 22 suburbs, in-
cluding Houghton. Mr. Leon
has been regarded as one of
the sharpest critics of the
ANC. But he welcomes the
move of blacks into
Houghton, enabled by the
overturning by South
African President F.W. de
Klerk of the apartheid law
that segregated residential
areas.
Mr. Leon described
Mandela's home as "a fairly
modest double- story," com-
pared to the many mansions

in Houghton.
Mr. Leon, a lawyer and
academic, is sought after as
"a Jewish spokesman" on
political and other issues,
succeeding Harry Schwarz, a
veteran member of Parlia-
ment who is now the South
African ambassador to the
United States.
He expressed concern for
the country's future, par-
ticularly in three areas —
property rights, physical
safety and "white flight" or
potential emigration of
white South Africans who
are anxious over massive
changes in the country.
A large-scale departure of
skilled whites would produce
an "economic Holocaust," he
said.
But he added: "However
pessimistic people may feel,
there is still a glimmer of
hope. Because for every
right-wing fanatic there is a
right-wing realist, and every
warlord is matched by a man
of peace."
"But the shafts of light are
often overwhelmed by clouds
of darkness," he said.
