Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan announced that he would run for the leadership of the Habayit Hayehudi party, in an interview on KAN News Sunday.
"I intend to take responsibility to lead religious Zionism in the coming elections," Ben Dahan said. "We need to gather all religious Zionists, a deeply rooted and magnificent movement, the soul of the nation, who have so many institutions that must be cared for."
Ben Dahan's announcement comes after Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked announced the formation of a new party, Hayemin Hehadash, Saturday evening.
