The Bayit Yehudi's advertisements are manipulative and deceitful, Likud Beytenu wrote in a petition to the Central Election Committee on Thursday evening against ads with both Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on it.

The new campaign, launched on Wednesday, features Netanyahu and Bennett's pictures next to each other, with the slogan "supporting Netanyahu, voting Bennett." The Bayit Yehudi officials said the ads were meant to encourage Netanyahu to include the party in the next coalition.

Likud Beytenu submitted a complaint to the Central Election Committee Thursday evening, demanding that the ads be removed immediately and that they not appear in Friday's newspapers.
