Rosh Yeshivat Kisei Rachamim HaGaon HaRav Meir Mazuz Shlita during an election kenos announced he has changed his mind. He explained that since he sees Shas fighting the Yachad party, those who voted for Shas in the past can also vote Yachad in the upcoming elections.
What is clear is that now, the rules of election game have changed and Yachad is working to persuade former Shas voters to back the new party. The rosh yeshiva was addressing an Ashdod election event, explaining he did not feel Shas would be taking an offensive approach against Yachad but things being what they are, the rules have changed.
