Three senior Zehut officials endorse Shaked’s Yamina

Three senior officials from Moshe Feiglin’s Zehut party officially endorse Ayelet Shaked’s Yamina faction for the upcoming elections.

In a press conference, Gilad Alper, Libby Molad and Refael Minnes announce their decision and call on other party members to vote for the right-wing slate on September 17.

Yamina’s No. 2, Naftali Bennett, says he’s “proud that we are embarking on a journey together for freedom in Israel.”

The move by the Zehut lawmakers comes after Feiglin last week re-joined Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party for the September vote in exchange for a ministerial post in the next government.
