Habayit Hayehudi leadership candidates MK Zevulun Orlev and Science and Technology Minister Daniel Herschkowitz emphasized the importance of a united national-religious list with the National Union on Sunday.

Orlev and Herschkowitz's statements came after a party source told The Jerusalem Post that third Habayit Hayehudi leadership candidate Naftali Bennett said he only wants MK Uri Ariel (National Union) as second on a joint list, without National Union leader Ya'acov Katz and MKs Arieh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari.

"This is one of a long line of irresponsible statements about personalities in religious Zionism and the prime minister that could split national-religious voters and leave Habayit Hayehudi in the opposition," Herschkowitz said.

The minister added that Bennett clashed with many people who worked with him in the past, and that Habayit Hayehudit needs responsible leadership.
