In response to National Religious Party Chairman MK Zevulun Orlev’s call for consolidated primaries of the two current factions of what used to be the historic NRP, MK Jacob “Katzale” Katz, who heads the National Union faction, said the primaries are a corrupt system by definition, and would “endanger the idea of Greater Israel.”
Katz argued that the candidates who manage to get more money win primaries. He called for a reunited NRP, and for the list of candidates to be decided by prominent rabbis.Yori Yanover
