Furthermore, there is little doubt, many voters from Kadima on the one hand, and from Habayit Hayehud/Mafdal and the National Union will be able to find a home in this new union, something that may finally enable the political system to introduce the reforms that it needs, and will begin to deal in a meaningful and productive way with the Haredim who don't serve, don't work and live on entitlements.
