      Orbach: PM Trying to Meddle in Our Primaries


      Chairman Uri Orbach of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) Knesset faction claimed, Sunday, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was "meddling" in the party primaries, "with a little help on the inside". In a status posted on his Facebook page, Member of Knesset Orbach explained, "Netanyahu is concerned that the NRP, led by [Naftali] Bennett, will get stronger and steal his seats. He's right. We will fight for every vote."

      However, Orbach added, "We are not from the Likud but the NRP-Bayit Yehudi and, together with our colleagues from the National Union, we will return religious Zionism to be a central force on the political map."
