Uri Ariel to run again as chairman of National Union party

National Union Chairman Uri Ariel is again running for chairman of the party in the upcoming elections on April 9th.
The National Union party, which ran in previous election cycles as part of Habayit Hayehudi, met for an emergency meeting on Saturday night after Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked announced their departure from the party to form a new secular-religious party.
"We decided to continue to strengthen religious Zionism together, to continue talks and accelerate our unification, in order to win in the next elections as a united right-wing party with a strong religious Zionist leadership," Ariel wrote.
If he loses, he will no longer be an MK.
