Bayit Yehudi, National Union to Meet on Unity Ticket


Chairman Daniel Hershkowitz and Member of Knesset Uri Orbach of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) are scheduled to meet, Monday with Chairman Ya'akov Katz and Knesset member Uri Ariel of the Tekumah party in the  National Union to advance a joint list in the next Knesset elections.

The National Union representatives said they made every effort for a joint list although there was no response from MKs Aryeh Eldad (Hatikva) and Michael Ben-Ari (Eretz Yisrael Shelanu) ahead of the Eretz Yisrael Shelanu faction's meeting next week on running together with Eldad's faction. Members of the National Religious Party Central Committee have their own demands of the Bayit Yehudi leadership.
