Yamina’s Shaked rules out alliance with Gideon Sa’ar

Yamina MK Ayelet Shaked says her party won’t merge with Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope.

“Gideon Sa’ar and his party were part of a failed government; such a merger is not on the table,” she says at an Israel Democracy Institute event.

Shaked expresses hope Yamina will be “the second-largest party and Bennett will form the next government.”
