MK Moti Yogev announced Sunday that he plans to run for the leadership of the Jewish Home Party after Bennett and Shaked resign.

In an interview with Sharon Gal on Galei Yisrael, Yogev said, "Lately, it has, apparently, been a disgrace to raise the flags of religious Zionism."

"We will raise the flags of the Nation of Israel, the Torah of Israel, the Land of Israel and the State of Israel, and we will strengthen the flags of religious Zionism, in the center and in the periphery."

"Personally, I intend to take this responsibility and run for the leadership of the Jewish Home Party and of course turn it into a national-religious and social party whose constituency feels partner and influences its path," Yogev said.

Earlier, Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan told Kan Bet that he intends to run for the leadership of the Jewish Home Party after Bennett and Shaked resign.

"We have a great challenge," said the deputy minister. "There is only one right-wing religious Zionist party - the Jewish Home. As someone who was elected third on the party list and served as part of its leadership, I intend to take responsibility for the party and lead it for the benefit of our public."

In the interview, Ben Dahan also referred to MK Shuli Moalem's departure with Bennett and Shaked. "Shuli is the flesh and blood of religious Zionism and her place is in the Jewish Home. I regret her move, it is causing us millions of shekels of damage. The financial situation of the party is not brilliant, we have debts from even before the previous elections."
