A political party representing the anti-judicial overhaul protest movement will run in the upcoming Tel Aviv municipal elections on a joint ticket with the left-wing Meretz party and the “Green Center” party.
The party will be known as the “New Contract.”
A joint statement says the slates decided to join forces to represent liberal values.
“The need to present a united front for liberal and democratic forces to take control of centers of power and influence over our lives is clearer today than ever before,” the statement says.
“These three groups share a joint ideology and ideas of furthering liberal democracy, equal rights, social and environmental justice, a fair economy, and an Israeli Shabbat,” the statement says.
Meital Lahavi from Meretz will head the list.
