Israeli parties deciding

Israeli parties weighing options. How will the religious ones keep- or get- some power? :

Haaretz :

...(Benny) Elon said that talks continue over the possibility of the NRP and National Union establishing a joint bloc with the ultra-Orthodox parties Shas and Degel Hatorah that would work in tandem after the elections and undertake to join the government only together.
This would be a parliamentary bloc, not a separate electoral list. Such cooperation would be based on a trifled consensus, Elon said: agreement about a referendum before evacuating a community in the Land of Israel; to include yeshiva education in the budget book, without discriminating between various types of yeshiva education; and an agreement not to vote in the Knesset for a constitution so long as the High Court of Justice is its interpreter.
