R' Elyashiv: try to unite

Arutz Sheva:

Rabbi Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, the spiritual leader of the Degel HaTorah Party, has instructed MKs Rabbis Moshe Gafne and Avraham Ravitz to enter into negotiations with Agudat Yisrael MKs Rabbis Meir Porush, Yaakov Litzman and Shmuel Halpert.
The two parties, Degel and Agudah ran in the last election under a unified United Torah Judaism banner.
Increasing tensions led to a significant breakdown in relations leading to the split.
Rabbi Elyashiv is aware that running under independent lists will significantly reduce the number of mandates controlled by the Hareidi sector, which will have negative ramifications in all aspects of day-to-day life for the Hareidi ultra-Orthodox electorate.

There was good reason for the split in the first place, and the divisions have only intensified since then. They have not lessened.

It should at least be attempted.
