"He called himself and I barely spoke to him for ten minutes," she said in an interview with 103FM.
"I can't think about running together. He doesn't represent my principles and ideology."
Mokhtar continued and said that Avidar is motivated by hatred for opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu. "What do I care about Bibi, not Bibi?" she claimed. "I have no problem with those politicians.
I want to cooperate with them to promote the ideology of the young people.
What do I care about left and right?
If it's not the cost of living, it's not interesting."
