JERUSALEM (AP) — Two senior Israeli cabinet ministers say they are forming a new party to run in April elections.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked announced Saturday that they are leaving the Jewish Home party.
The Jewish Home is a hard-line nationalist party that is especially popular with religious voters and West Bank settlers.
Bennett and Shaked said that their new movement, called "The New Right," will have a broader appeal to both religious and secular voters.
Bennett has been the leader of the Jewish Home since 2012.
