Moshe Kahlon, the head of the Kulanu Party who is vying for the position of finance minister in the next Israeli government, told Channel 2 on Friday that he will refuse membership in a cabinet that includes "non-Zionist parties."

"I am a product of the nationalist camp," Kahlon, the former communications minister who left Likud to form his own faction, said. "What happens in this country is not as important [to those parties] so I do not belong with them."

Kahlon said he would be agreeable to serve in a government with Zionist parties.
