Hayemin HeChadash selects winning candidate

Hayemin Hechadash, Th New Right, founders, Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked, have made another selection for a candidate for the party list. And it is a winner. A big move.

If you though Caroline Glick was a splashy appointment, Shirley Pinto might be even bigger. The selection of Shirley Pinto is historic, as it is the first time a deaf person will be competing for a Knesset seat.

Pinto is an activist for the rights of deaf people, and for others with disabilities as well, in Israel.

Naftali Bennett is, so far, being heavily outnumbered by women in this new party.

Without knowing anything about her beyond the little I read, this looks like a great selection. A woman, young, someone who fights for the disabled, as she herself is deaf... this is a home run selection. Pinto will provide a good reason for a lot of people to vote for this party...

  1. Funniest comment on the Yisrael hayom site (paraphrased): If there is already a party headed by a Mute (Benny Gantz), why not include a deaf person as well?
