Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday evening called on Habayit Yehudi, Ichud Leumi, Otzma Yehudit,and Yachad parties to unite, saying that such a union could prevent the right from losing as many as seven seats in the upcoming Knesset elections.
“You must not lose those votes because at the end it is a matter of whether it will be a left-wing government or a right-wing government. The split on the right will inevitably lead to a loss in the elections. Therefore, I turn to you and therefore I hold phone calls and meetings with all the heads of these parties in order to unite and connect,” Netanyahu said.
The prime minister stressed that “none of [these parties] passes the threshold, (while) a connection between them will bring at least 6-8 seats. Joining one of them with the Likud does not add seats according to our polls, and therefore it does not achieve the goal.”
