An MK from Blue & White returns to the Likud

Gadi Yevarkan, a Knesset member of Ethiopian background who was originally part of the Likud before going over to Blue & White, is now returning to the Likud, apparently disillusioned with Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid's joke of a party:
The Blue and White party lost a Knesset member on Wednesday when Ethiopian-born MK Gadi Yevarkan, 39, decided to accept an offer to accept the 20th spot on the Likud list of candidates in the upcoming elections on March 2nd. Blue & White had placed the lawmaker much farther down on their list — in the 33rd place — for the upcoming ballots.

Needless to say, Blue and White leadership was unhappy with the news and immediately took Yevarkan off the list.

“I decided, in coordination with MK Lt. Gen. [Moshe] Bogie Ya’alon to remove MK Gadi Yevarkan from the Blue and White slate,” wrote faction leader Benny Gantz. [...]

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lost no time in welcoming Yevarkan to the party on Wednesday, saying “I am happy to see you here. We have so much to do, so much to fix, in the struggle over violence, over discrimination, over equality. For all these reasons I’ll be happy to see you settled back at home with the Likud.”

In responding, Yevarkan replied, “Mr. Prime Minister, I am happy to return home, and by the way, it’s because the community pressured me night and day, recently, to come back.

“For about 20 years, I have worked for the community, exactly for these reasons; I really hope and believe that we will improve the situation of the community, and of the general Israeli society, for the unity of Israel, and for the benefit of Eretz Israel. We’ll do it, and we’ll succeed,” Yevarkan said.
He's doing the right thing to return, and it's clear Gantz and Yaalon were unfair to him in the end. He's much better off with the Likud.
