Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu has decided to intervene to ensure the Religious Zionist and Otzma Yehudit parties run together in the upcoming elections for the 25th elections. Kan 11 reported that internal polls taken by the Likud party have led Netanyahu to fear that if the two parties run separately, one of them may not pass the electoral threshold, wasting tens of thousands of right-wing votes and preventing Netanyahu from securing a majority to form a coalition.
