Tiveria Mayor Kobi’s Party Is Accepted: A New Right-Wing Secular Party


Despite the request filed by the chairman of the Yisrael Beitenu party, MK Avigdor Lieberman, to disqualify the ‘Secular Right’ party headed by Tiveria Mayor Ron Kobi, the Party Registrar has registered the party.

According to a report released by Yediot Achronot, the head of the Party Registrar, attorney Eyal Globus, explained to Yisrael Beitenu and the Secular Right that he is rejecting Lieberman’s claims and has agreed to officially register Kobi’s party as legitimate.

Kobi has already announced that if he passes the minimum election threshold to enter Knesset, he will not join a coalition government that includes Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri. “I promise one thing. If Bibi supports Deri, I will not back Bibi. Deri cannot sit in a place that I am sitting in. I prefer anyone who does not sell the State of Israel to Aryeh Deri”.

  1. Lol, translation “I’m doing a pathetic job as mayor; let’s deflect from that and pretend people like me and announce a party that’ll get max. 20 votes”

    What a loser.

  2. Good riddance to an evil person and a terrible politician.
    He hopefully won’t have any influence in the Knesset except to dilute the secular vote.
    Hopefully the Kedusha of Teveria can now be restored.
    He’ll go to the same place all the haters of Torah ended up – Shulamit Aloni, Tommy Lapid etc. But Torah is live and doing better every day, despite all the hardships.

  3. May this horrible guy be ousted out of Tveriah. I pray that either he does Teshuva or that HaShem breaks him completely.
