After news broke of a deal between New Hope and Blue and White to run on one joint electoral slate, Meretz MK Yair Golan — who is running to head his party — calls for a similar union on the left.

“Has the season of unions began?” Golan tweets. “We should read the writing on the wall: A large and united Israeli-Zionist left-wing camp.”

Golan has said that he favors Meretz joining with the Labor party, but current Labor chief Merav Michaeli has indicated that she is opposed.
