Officials in the National Union Party were conducting negotiations with several Likud "rebels" in an attempt to convince them to join the party. The MKs involved were those pushed to unrealistic spots on the Likud list in the party's primary vote. According to Army Radio, National Union MK Aryeh Eldad met with Likud MK Ehud Yatom, who was reportedly offered the seventh spot on the National Union list. Several other "rebels" were reportedly planning to leave the Likud en masse and to join National Union, a move that would increase National Union's elections budget and further weaken the Likud.
