Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) was interviewed this morning on News 12 and described the ruling party's situation ahead of the elections, as well as her personal future in politics.

A News survey published in Tuesday's main edition placed the Likud with 29 Knesset seats.

"I'd be happy if there was a union between the left-wing parties, that would guarantee us victory," Hotovely said. "Benny Gantz - his candidacy doesn't bother me, former chiefs of staff have already failed in politics."

The Deputy Minister was asked if she was disappointed that she did not receive the absorption file for which she was a candidate and replied: "I'm not disappointed. My years in the Foreign Ministry are my best in politics and the future is still before me. Netanyahu called me and promised me that I'd be a minister in the next government."
