Deputy State Attorney for Special Assignments Shai Nitzan is expected to end his career at the State Attorney's Office next month, according to Haaretz. Nitzan will have completed eight years in his current job, where he has earned the wrath of Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, and of Jewish nationalists in general.
Haaretz says Nitzan, who was vying for the post of Jerusalem District Attorney, canceled his candidacy after learning that Attorney Nurit Litman, the number 2 figure in the Jerusalem District Attorney's Office, will receive the job.
Sources in the Justice Ministry said that Nitzan may compete for the position of Deputy Attorney General. The report added that Attorney General and Government Legal Advisor Yehuda Weinstein does not want Nitzan to quit government service.
Nitzan is widely regarded in nationalist circles as being motivated by an ultra-leftist agenda. He has approved dozens of administrative distancing orders and arrest orders against Jews that can be issued by the Minister of Defense without court approval.
