Haaretz analyst Yossi Verter has estimated that Deputy Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahana will not run again with with the Yamina party.

According to Verter, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, who now heads Yamina, has set general guidelines for the party's campaign: "It is mostly a financial campaign, supporting a 'broad government,' not ruling out any party, other than the Joint Arab List. The United Arab List (Ra'am) can be a partner on condition that the government is not reliant on it. And obviously that [MK Benjamin] Netanyahu is fit and worthy to be prime minister, along with [Defense Minister Benny] Gantz (Blue and White, [interim Prime Minister Yair] Lapid, and [Justice Minister Gideon] Sa'ar (New Hope), by the way."

Shaked will also try to be the 'kingmaker' who decides which government will be formed, he said, adding, "There's no need to play games, it's clear which option is more pleasant in her eyes."
