One stubborn party that refuses to quit the Knesset election race, despite its dire showing in the latest surveys, is the New Economy Party, led by Prof. Yaron Zelekha, a former accountant general. He told KAN that their internal polls show them winning 5 to 7 seats and he has vowed to run till the end in order to reform Israel’s economy and reshape it away from its “extreme capitalists regime,” that gives gigantic tax breaks to tycoons and large corporations, in his words. He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that he declined offers from Yesh Atid and the New Hope party to be their nominee for the next finance minister and would run on his own.
