Support for former Justice Minister Shaked to lead United Right grows, leaving current leaders in the dust

According to Makor Rishon‘s survey, 40.1% of Religious Zionists want Shaked to head the list, while just 19% want former Education Minister Naftali Bennett (New Right) to lead the party. Following the two are United Right MK Bezalel Smotrich with 15.2% of the vote and United Right Chairman MK Rabbi Rafi Peretz with 14.8%. Itamar Ben-Gvir (2.6%) and Zehut Chairman Moshe Feiglin (1%) are the least popular.

Right wing parties should form a joint ticket, and hold a primary to decide who leads it. In the April election, New Right, Zehut, and United Right got a total of 416,089 votes, which could have equaled 14 seats in the Knesset, had they run on a joint ticket.
