Avraham Hakek, the candidate on behalf of the United List, said: "For many days, we worked to bring about good and important connections and unions that will give the public we represent the most strength for the elections in the city. This unity will enable joint work and increase strong results on the ground. We do not compromise on the good of the religious community in Bat Yam, and we will work with full vigor to promote the issues that are at the top of the list of priorities. I welcome the union that we have brought with the belief that only together we can bring about real change, in my estimation the union is an opening for further unions that will be in the future and will add a serious strength for the residents of the city."

Yehonatan Elharar, the candidate on behalf of the Torah Flag Social Front, said: "This connection was needed, the public in the city wants to accept a different politics, a politics that knows how to respect the other parties, give a real answer to the citizens, and be a listening ear for every resident. I am sure that the united list will bring good news with it to the residents of Bat Yam".
