Naftali Bennett, the chairman of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, cast his ballot in the elections Tuesday morning, near his home in Raanana. He arrived at the ballot accompanied by his wife, Gilat.

"I think we are starting something new in Am Yisrael," Bennett told Arutz Sheva. "We are trying to unite all the various tribes in Israel. The secular, the religious, the ultrareligious. The Druze, the Arabs – everyone together. To unite Israel and do something good for this nation."

Bennett was accompanied by youths who chanted "hoo – ha, who is this coming? The next Prime Minister!"
