Kulanu representative Roy Folkman, who addressed the Jerusalem Post debate on the upcoming elections said that the "current politics in Israel are being pushed to the extremes and we came to work."

He said this was why they chose not to vote in the central elections committee vote regarding Otzma Yehudit and its candidates being allowed to partake in elections. "I was put in charge of the working plan. It's not our job to say who can or cannot be elected," adding that the right shouts at the left and the left shouts at the right, and "the central elections committee has nothing to do with who can or cannot be elected to Knesset."

"We came to work. We are pro-reforms and it needs to be done in a serious manner," he said.
