New Hope Party

In December 2020, Gideon Sa’ar left Likud to form his own party called New Hope. Two other members of the Likud, Michal Shir and Sharron Haskel joined Sa’ar. They were followed by Minister of Higher Education Ze’ev Elkin who resigned his post.

Sa’ar hopes to win enough votes to form a right-wing coalition without Likud to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It is not yet clear what the party platform will be but will undoubtedly reflect Sa’ar’s opposition to a two-state solution. Instead, he favors the annexation of the West Bank while being open to allowing the Palestinians autonomy in a federation with Jordan.
