The Zehut Party of former Likud MK Moshe Feiglin announced Sunday that one of its candidate in the next Knesset election will be economist Gilad Alper, a senior analyst at Excellence Nessuah Brokerage Services and formerly at Merrill Lynch.

Zehut officials said it was important to Feiglin to stress the new party’s liberal economic platform, which Alper wrote. Unlike Feiglin, who is Orthodox and lives in Karnei Shomron, Alper is secular and lives in Tel Aviv, bringing variety to the party. Feiglin said Alper is “an important fresh voice, who has experience and a deep knowledge of the economy.” Zehut will unveil more candidates at its opening convention at the Tel Aviv Port next week, including Druse and haredi (ultra-Orthodox) candidates.
