“This past year has made it clear how big the differences are between the values and norms that define the Likud today” and the values the party claims to uphold, said Haskel, according to Arutz 7.

“All that’s come of the party’s promises for judicial reform are just words. The promise to apply sovereignty in Judea and Samaria has been neglected. Initiatives to lower prices and the cost of living were torpedoed,” she said.

“But worst of all, the current government has failed completely to manage the state’s affairs and betrayed the trust citizens placed in the state. Recent events only prove that this government has no mandate to continue to govern,” she added.

Haskel, who has been in the Knesset with Likud since 2015, has professed libertarian views including the legalization of cannabis and the reduction of government regulation.

Two additional Likud MKs have announced their intent to join Sa’ar’s new party: Michal Shir and Yifat Shasha-Biton.
