As D-Day gets closer, municipal election tensions rise, disorder takes over and confusion reigns. Alliances of yesterday become disbandment of today and war declaration of tomorrow, and we are still more than three months away from elections. 

One of those test cases is what happened in the last two weeks in the Yerushalmim list (two seats at city council), threatening unity among the Yerushalmim movement, the natural reservoir of the list at council. Some list members are complaining that MK Rachel Azaria (Kulanu), on her way back to Jerusalem’s affairs, undermined the state of things. Yerushalmim is a list aiming mostly at young couples and families, predominantly Modern Orthodox or traditional, founded by Azaria and headed by Fleur Hassan-Nahoum since Azaria moved to the Knesset three years ago.
