People close to Member of Knesset Zevulun Orlev (Bayit Yehudi) attacked, Tuesday, the unity agreement signed, Monday evening, between fellow party chairmanship candidate Naftali Bennett and Chairman Ya'akov Katz of the National Union party.
The Orlev associates said, in a statement, "This is a virtual and comic event. The National Union apparently does not really know that the NRP [National Religious Party -ed.], contrary to the National Union party, is a party in which there are democratic elections for chairman of the movement, and the movement is who signs agreements and not a candidate who has not yet been elected. MK Orlev has promised, in every forum that once he is elected and receives the trust of tens of thousands of NRP members, he will immediately act to sign an agreement, as he did in the joint race in 2006."
