Yesh Atid, Israel Beiteinu and Moshe Kahlon's new party may cooperate in the coming election to form a bloc against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, sources in Yesh Atid said yesterday.

The cooperation among the three parties, whose leaders – Yair Lapid, Avigdor Lieberman and Kahlon – all loathe Netanyahu, is not certain however.

Lapid and Lieberman decided to work together on the eve of the Knesset's winter session to pass legislation on religion and state affairs, but the move failed. So far the cooperation between them yielded mainly regarding Livni's demand to advance the conversion bil.

Coordinating their positions enabled them to advance the bill rapidly in the Knesset's Constitution Committee, which Lieberman controls.

The move forced Prime Minister Netanyahu to bring the bill to the cabinet's approval and it has recently come into effect as a cabinet decision.

Yesh Atid members refused to comment on the issue yesterday. Israel Beiteinu sources denied the rumors and said "there is no cooperation. We have good relations with all the parties. We'll focus on a positive campaign that will convey the party's vision and messages."

Sources close to Kahlon said they know of no cooperation with Lapid and Israel Beiteinu. "We're managing alone," they said.
