Derech Eretz MKs Hendel, Hauser say they’re joining Gideon Sa’ar’s party
Derech Eretz lawmakers Yoaz Hendel and Zvi Hauser announce they will join former Likud MK Gideon’s Sa’ar’s new right-wing party in the next election.
The two coalition MKs won’t quit the Knesset, however.
“Being right-wing does not mean being a ‘Bibist’ [Netanyahu supporter] and determine what’s best for the leader, but rather the opposite — to make decisions based on ideology,” says Hendel. “Likud has become mixed up in the past few years. Gideon Sa’ar has not.”
