(Worthy News) - With Benny Gantz’s Israel Resilience party soaring in the polls after announcing a merger with fellow former chief of staff Moshe Ya’alon’s Telem faction last week, the newly formed New Right party is now reportedly seeking to form a united bloc of all the major right-wing parties in order to counter a challenge from the center.

Fearing a continued surge for Gantz, Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked’s New Right is actively pursuing a possible merger with the ruling Likud party as well two other current coalition partners, Kulanu and Yisrael Beytenu, according to a report Sunday morning by the Kan public broadcaster.

Likud is currently polling at around 30 seats, with Israel Resilience predicted to snag around 19 seats if elections were held today. But polls held last week showed a further Israel Resilience merger with the centrist Yesh Atid getting around 35 seats, and the bloc could further strengthen if more center-left parties agree to unite.
