Former MK Rabbi Amsalem Pledges Allegiance to Likud Party


Former MK Rabbi Haim Amsalem, who had left the Shas party to form the Whole Nation (Am Shalem) party, has joined the ranks of the Likud party this evening (Tuesday).

Rabbi Amsalem explained this decision as being a strategic one: in order to continue his political career, he needed to join a party that had received enough votes in the previous election.
