Former Yamina MK Abir Kara submits his Economic Freedom party’s list of candidates for an independent run focused on the cost of living.

“These elections are about our pockets,” says Kara.

“There is no Western country that succeeded without economic freedom,” he adds.

Kara formally split from Yamina today to run with his own party in the November 1 election.

Economic Freedom is currently polling below the minimum vote threshold necessary to enter the Knesset.
