Two centrist contenders in Israel’s race for prime minister announced their intent to cooperate. Knesset member Dan Meridor, who left the Likud Party to challenge Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and former army chief Amnon Lipkin-Shahak acknowledged that they had not yet decided who would lead their centrist party, but agreed to work together whatever the decision. Shahak is expected to announce his plans to run for prime minister at a news conference Wednesday.
