Eli Yishai, chairman of Yachad, called for the establishment of a joint list between Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked's 'New Right' party and the entire right-wing bloc.

"Let me reassure you: these elections will not decide Netanyahu's fate, but rather Bennett's," Yishai said at the Jerusalem conference Tuesday afternoon. "The question is what will happen after these elections, what will happen to the right-wing camp."

"It is estimated that the number of mandates that the right-wing parties can produce is around eighteen seats, together with Naftali Bennett from the New Right. I hope that everyone will show responsibility and maybe we will even grow by one or two seats. In the end, they will preserve the right wing and increase the strength and position of the entire bloc," he said.

"I also believe that a large right bloc will strengthen the government, stabilize it and ensure that it will act in accordance with the ideology of the right, which will be difficult to implement with Gantz and Lapid in the coalition.

"The fact is that in this most right-wing government, there was still a freeze, and this is the government that had the most sympathetic administration in Washington. Therefore, we must do everything in order to unite the right-wing camp and bring as many seats as possible," Yishai concluded.
