Yisrael Beytenu formally submits its candidate list in anticipation of November’s elections.

Party lawmaker Alex Kushnir, number seven on the now finalized roster, says that Yisrael Beytenu has fought to implement economic reforms and plans to continue doing so in the next Knesset.

“We are for liberal economics,” he says.

Kushnir also reaffirms that Yisrael Beytenu kept its promises upon entering the 24th Knesset to prevent former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu from holding onto power, to block Haredi parties from joining a coalition, and to take the treasury portfolio, which the party did.
