Yishai and Tekuma to run together

Eli Yishai and Tekuma are on the verge of signing an agreement to run together in the upcoming election. The 1st spot on the list will be Eli Yishai, the 2nd Uri Ariel, the 3rd Yoni Chetboun and the 4th Zevulun Kalfa. The rest of the list will be agreed upon later.

It appears that a woman will not be given a spot on the list in this election although sources left the door open for that to change in the future.

A person involved in the negotiations today said that the party will be “the first nationalist haredi party” in Israel’s history.

The party will try to fill a niche that is “more religious than Kahlon, more social-minded than Bennett and more right-wing than Deri”.
