During the conference, Central Committee members supporting Moti Yogev were furious with Rabbi Peretz's intention to save a spot for journalist Sarah Beck and push Yogev to seventh place on the unified list.

The Otzma Yehudit Party welcomed the decision by the Jewish Home Central Committee to approve the agreement for a joint run, saying: "Otzma Yehudit congratulates the members of the Jewish Home Central Committee for choosing unity and voting overwhelmingly to approve the agreement with Otzma Yehudit. Now we call on Minister Betzalel Smotrich to join the union so we can start working together, shoulder to shoulder, and together we will bring victory to the Right bloc."
