It appears that Harav Amar Shlit"a Sefardic Chief Rabbi of Israel would like to continue his Job after his term is finished in 2 years.
There was a law passed that the C.R. could attempt to extend his position for an extra term.
Rav Amar is quite popular amongst the Sefardic community in E.Y. and has the support of Maran Harav Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a.
Rav Amar was the center of controversy when he validated the quick conversions of the IDF.
