United Right Party - HaYamin HaMeuhad

The United Right (Hebrew: הימין המאוחד, HaYamin HaMeuhad) is an Israeli political alliance of right-wing to far-right partie formed by the New Right and the Union of Right-Wing Parties. The parties agreed to unite in an effort to surpass the electoral threshold needed to win seats in the Knesset. Following the failure to pass the threshold in the April 2019 election, New Right leader Naftali Bennett agreed to give leadership of the new party to Ayelet Shaked, which made the new union even more remarkable given the belief that male Orthodox political leaders would never recognize the leadership of a secular woman.
