Eli Yishai not creating new party with Uri Ariel

In private conversations with his associates, Eli Yishai has indicated that he is not planning to join with Bayit Yehudi’s Uri Ariel to create a new party.

The talks with Ariel were intended to help Ariel extract concessions in his negotiations with Bayit Yehudi’s Naftali Bennett.

However, tonight (Saturday) Yishai is expected to hold further talks with associates and it is possible he will change his mind on the subject.

In private conversations held last Friday, Yishai explained to his associates that he can not run with Uri Ariel after Rav Ovadia Yosef called Ariel “a gentile”.
