Likud left out in the cold by parties’ vote surplus deals

Channel 13 notes that the two surplus vote agreements signed today between Yamina and New Hope and between Yesh Atid and Yisrael Beytenu mean that Israel’s largest party, Likud, does not have any obvious candidate to sign an agreement of its own with.

Ultra-Orthodox parties Shas and United Torah Judaism are likely to sign with each other, leaving only center-left parties and very small ones — neither of which is of much help to Benjamin Netanyahu’s party.
