Likud Minister Calls for United Left

Likud minister Benny Begin said Sunday that he supports Likud’s merger with Yisrael Beyteinu, and thinks the political left should unite as well. “It’s important that there be unity among left-wing parties,” he told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal) interviewer Razi Barkai. “There needs to be a political force that poses a real threat to the government’s continued rule, and pushes it to effective action.”

“Two big parties are very important to any democracy, ours included,” he added.
