Political career

Milo started his political activity during his student days, when he was Chairman of the Israeli Student Union, he moved into politics with the Herut faction of Likud, and was Chairman of the party's Information Department. Elected to the ninth Knesset in 1977 as a Likud MK, Milo was the country's first ever Minister of the Environment in Yitzhak Shamir's government in 1988, before becoming Minister of Labor and Social Welfare in 1990, though he switched to Minister of Police in a cabinet reshuffle later in the year. He also became Chairman of the World Likud Organisation, and was editor of the Yoman HaShavua (lit. Diary of the Week) weekly publication.

In 1992 Milo was elected Mayor of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, and resigned from the Knesset on 30 December 1993 to concentrate on his mayoral duties.

Following the end of his spell as mayor, Milo returned to the Knesset after the 1999 elections as a member of the Centre Party, and was made Minister of Health in Ehud Barak's government in 2000. After Ariel Sharon won special elections for Prime Minister in 2001, Milo was made Minister of Regional Co-operation in the new government. He left the Centre Party with Yehiel Lasry to form Lev, which joined Likud after just a few minutes in existence. After only being placed 47th on the Likud list,[1] he lost his seat in the 2003 elections.
