Meretz chief Zehava Gal-On on Thursday criticized the official primary list of national religious party Bayit Yehudi, saying that the list reflects "the dangerous merging of dark religious fundamentalism and dangerous nationalist fanaticism."

"The unveiling of the list rips the mask that [Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali] Bennett tried to put on the party. I call on all of the Center parties to not join a Bibi-Bennett government," Gal-On added.
