With the nomination by United Torah Judaism, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shot ahead and now has 51 nominations versus the 24 which have been given to Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog.

Former deputy health minister Yaakov Litzman, who is looking to hold the portfolio again, told President Reuven Rivlin that UTJ is primarily interested in social welfare issues and would like the next government to focus attention on peripheral communities, especially the weaker sectors.
