Speaking to supporters at an event in Tel Aviv on Thursday, Naftali Bennett, leader of the Bayit Yehudi party, directed harsh criticism towards political rival and leader of the centrist Kulanu party, Moshe Kahlon, accusing him of playing to the Left in order to garner more support for the upcoming election.

"Stop running towards the Left," Bennett remarked.

"To be socially just, you don't need to be leftist. To lower the price of cheese, you do not need to hand over territories. To raise the minimum wage, as I did this week, you don't need to divide Jerusalem, " he added.

A Knesset Channel poll released Tuesday showed that 47% of expected Kulanu voters prefer that he recommend the center-left Zionist Union party, and 33% prefer Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
