National Union MKs slammed Habayit Hayehudi leadership candidate Naftali Bennett on Thursday, after Bennett  told sources within his party that, should he win, he would get rid of three-fourths of the National Union MKs, including Katz, in the parties' planned unity deal.

Bennett said he will take the top spot in a united list, followed by MK Uri Ariel (National Union), who would have priority for any ministerial positions offered in coalition negotiations.

Katz is sick of politics and plans to leave, so Uri Ariel will only be the Tekuma party member left in the National Union, Bennett told a party source in a closed meeting. Then, we won’t put National Union MKs Arye Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari on the list, and they can run as a separate, extreme-right party, he added.
