Former Likud MK Benny Begin, son of late PM, joins New Hope

Former Likud member Benny Begin, the son of the late Likud prime minister Menachem Begin, is joining Gideon Saar’s breakaway New Hope party.

“In recent years, and especially in the last year, we have witnessed a strange and dangerous phenomenon. Nasty, crude attacks are coming – specifically out of the government – against the central governmental institutions in the State of Israel, against our state institutions,” says Begin.

“This phenomenon must be stopped, and the way to stop it is to replace the government. Therefore, I was happy when my friend Gideon decided to take this bold step and establish the New Hope party to bring about a change of government. We have the opportunity to do this in the upcoming elections, and everyone has a duty to play their part and bring about a change of government in Israel.”
