Religious Zionism member suggests far-right alliance may now split

The head of the Religious Zionism youth wing says that the three factions that make up the far-right alliance likely would have failed to enter the Knesset if they ran alone.

“We would not have passed the electoral threshold and woke up in the morning to a left-wing government,” Yael Mantzur tells Army Radio.

The alliance, which Prime Minister Netanyahu helped broker, includes the National Union, Otzma Yehudit and Noam parties.

Mantzur suggests the parties may now split and go their own way.

“Everyone has his one opinion. We’ll see what happens later,” she says.
