Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman intend to announce the unification of their Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu parties, a Channel 2 report indicated on Thursday.

The move, due to be announced in a press conference in Jerusalem’s Dan Panorama Hotel, may be an attempt to overpower a possible unification between centrist and left-wing parties.

Last week, a Haaretz poll indicated that a new centrist party formed by Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid would win more seats in the next Knesset than the Likud.
