Bennett: Union Came About so Party Wouldn't Be Left Out


The Jewish Home party chairman Naftali Bennett explained on Sunday the reason for the alliance between his party and Yesh Atid. 

"Why did the alliance with Yair Lapid come about? Because of Likud's decision to leave the Jewish Home outside of the government," Bennett wrote in his Facebook page. 

According to him, if he did not form the alliance, "A government would have been established with Livni, Kadima, Shas, Yesh Atid and Likud, with no religious zionism and no Jewish Home."
