Slomiansky: Power of Nationalist Camp Hangs on Unity


Nissan Slomiansky, a candidate for a Knesset seat on the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) ballot, called, Friday, for unity among the nationalist parties. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, he said the results of the party's recent membership drive were amazing, bringing its rolls to 50,000, as compared to 30,000 in the Labor party. He added that the public showed its hope with these figures.

Slomiansky expressed hope that those who are elected in the party primaries will go all out for unity in the nationalist camp, explaining that despite its achievements, splits in the camp have left it without political power. He hoped recently-expressed differences could be overcome and said a united list could garner 10 seats in the next election and grow to 15 with continued effort.
