Bennett endorses US-born primary candidate Uri Bank

December 26, 2014 02:33

There are three English-speaking candidates running in the Bayit Yehudi primary, but only one got party leader Naftali Bennett’s blessing on Thursday: Uri Bank.

Bennett called Bank “an ideologue who brings with him great political experience.

In the last year-and-a-half he did an excellent job as faction secretary, and I wish him luck, together with the other candidates.”

Bank is a political veteran, running as a candidate for Knesset in every election since 2003. He started in 1994 in the Moledet party, which later became part of the National Union; in 1996 he served as MK Rabbi Benny Elon’s parliamentary aide; and he has continued his political activity since, most recently as the Bayit Yehudi faction secretary.
