MK Arye Eldad (NU/NRP) on Tuesday announced that he would run for the leadership on a new party, Hatikva, and would not be joining in the new joint right-wing list announced Monday.
Eldad explained his decision to stay away from the new party, comprised of the National Union and National Religious Party, because it was a religious party.
"The Israel faithfuls who are not religious do not have a real address in Israel because Binyamin Netanyahu's true opinions are unknown, Avigdor Lieberman has declared his willingness to swap land and the new right-wing party is only for the religious," Eldad said.
