Israel PM deal seeks to boost ultra-right in April vote

Israel PM deal seeks to boost ultra-right in April voteIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brokered an agreement Wednesday aimed at uniting ultra-right parties ahead of April elections, prompting accusations he was pandering to extremists. Netanyahu pushed for the deal to try to boost the number of seats held by right-wing parties after the April 9 elections, with an eye on his next coalition government should he win as expected. The agreement would see three parties on the far right run on a single electoral list instead of running separately: Jewish Home, National Union and Jewish Power.
