Am Shalem party leader Rabbi Chaim Amsellem on Wednesday 2 Teves met with party officials and stated emphatically that he remains undeterred and plans to run in the upcoming elections for the 20th Knesset.
Amsellem explained that he must continue fighting for the issues that he always felt were important while serving in Knesset and he remains optimistic and plans to see the race to the end.
In the previous elections, for the outgoing 19th Knesset, Amsellem failed to earn enough votes to pass the minimum threshold of two seats. This time around, the minimum threshold has been increased to 3.25% which translates to sufficient votes for four seats.
