Naftali Bennet, former chairman of the Council of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip, declared Sunday his intention to establish a political party in the coming says that will contend in the next elections to the Knesset.

In a message on his Facebook page, Bennet said that the party will seek to "bring Zionism back to the center."

Bennet stated that he would be joined in the new party by former IDF chief rabbi Avichai Ronsky and Ayelet Shaked, the chairwoman of right-wing NGO, "My Israel."

Prior to leading the settlement umbrella organization, Bennet served as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's chief of staff from 2006-2008 while the Likud leader headed the opposition.
