A government with the Right stuff?

It does not bode well for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s nascent government that the subject of the first meeting of his Likud faction following the swearing-in of its final minister was preparations for the next general election.

When Netanyahu convened the faction at the Knesset Wednesday, the meeting focused on the system the party uses to elect its slate of MKs, which will be brought for approval at the next Likud central committee meeting in three weeks.

Netanyahu used the meeting to attempt to restore order in a faction that had already started becoming unruly. He did that by distributing various deputy minister posts and Knesset committee chairmanships in rotation agreements among backbench Likud MKs.
