Tnufa leader says merger with Labor, Huldai’s party is ‘natural’

Leader of the center-left Tnufa faction Ofer Shelah, who broke away from Yesh Atid to form his own party, hints that he seeks to merge with Merav Michaeli’s Labor party and Ron Huldai’s The Israelis.

His comments come ahead of a February 4 deadline to lock down the party slates before March’s election.

“The alliance between us and Labor and The Israelis is natural. Together we can reach a double digit number of seats,” Shelah tells Army Radio.
