Professor: Otzma L’Yisrael, Am Shalem Should Leave


If the Otzma L’Yisrael and Am Shalem parties do not start doing better in the polls soon, they should leave the race, Professor Gabi Avital opined Tuesday in an interview with Arutz Sheva. Avitan, head of the Professors for Economic and Diplomatic Strength, said that the parties could weaken the political right by taking votes that do not translate to Knesset seats.

Recent polls indicated that both parties may fail to pass the threshold to enter Knesset. Previous polls have shown at least one getting into Knesset. Avitan advised waiting until the weekend polls are released to see if the latest polls indicated a trend or not.
