Politically homeless Hendel promises ‘big news’ coming soon
Communications Minister Yoaz Hendel tells supporters at a conference in Shoham that he will have news on the political front soon enough.
Hendel was left out of the merger between Blue and White and New Hope that was announced earlier this week. Hendel and MK Zvi Hauser make up the Derech Eretz faction that ran in the past few elections with both of the newly merged parties.
The minister says he will work hard to make sure that prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not return to power, and promises supporters that “soon there will be big news” on his political future.
