The New Right continued with its final campaign message that if their party does not get enough votes, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will form a unity government between his Likud party and Benny Gantz’s Blue and White. The goal is meant to combat Likud’s campaign messaging, that it needs to be the largest party in order for President Reuven Rivlin to task Netanyahu with forming the next government.

“The question of the 2019 election... Defense Minister [Naftali] Bennett or Defense Minister Gantz? Justice Minister [Ayelet] Shaked or Justice Minister [Yair] Lapid? The choice is in your hands,” Bennett tweeted on Monday.

On Sunday night, Bennett warned that “Netanyahu decided to wipe out the New Right in order to form a ‘peacenik’ government with Lapid and Gantz. There is simply no other satisfactory explanation for the tsunami he is waging against us... He knows that there is no one [other than Bennett and Shaked] capable of halting the creating of a Palestinian state.


“Do not fall into the trap,” Bennett warned.

The New Right also sent out messages appealing to English-speaking voters, first from Bennett’s mother Myrna, who made Aliyah from San Francisco and then from candidate Caroline Glick, who talked about having made Aliyah from Chicago and her columns in The Jerusalem Post.
