Habayit Hayehudi (The Jewish Home) will receive at least 20 seats in the elections on January 22, MK Yaakov "Ketzaleh" Katz predicted on Thursday.
Katz spoke to Arutz Sheva after a lengthy period in which he did not give any interviews to the media. Katz, who headed the National Union in the outgoing Knesset, chose to retire from politics and not be placed on the joint Jewish Home-National Union list.
"We're lucky, with G-d's help, to be seeing that the work which we did for four years is taking shape, and the Jewish Home will have twenty seats in the upcoming elections," said Katz. "Even Dr. Moshe Danino, number twenty on the list, will be in the Knesset. This is great news that will allow Prime Minister Netanyahu to form a government loyal to the Land of Israel with its main partner being the more loyal and idealistic public."
Katz, who said he prefers not to focus on his reasoning for not running, praised the Jewish Home Knesset list, saying, "The move is being led by Naftali Bennett and there are also people from the National Union like MK Uri Ariel, Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan, Zevulun Calfa, Orit Strook, Rabbi Hillel Horowitz and Nachi Eyal."
He added, "In the past I predicted that the party will get 15 seats and talked a lot about it in the Knesset, but not I have a feeling that the Jewish Home led by Naftali can lead a revolution and have 20 Knesset members, above and beyond all exceptions. It is important that Chabad Chasidim unite and give the votes to those who will give power to the new government to protect the land of Israel."
