Bennett powers in party to be cut tonight

The Bayit Yehudi central committee will convene in Yad Binyamin Tuesday night to approve a new party constitution that will take some powers away from party leader Naftali Bennett.

Activists in the party want more power for themselves and to punish Bennett for leading the party from 12 seats to eight in last year’s election. He also earned the wrath of the activists with his ill-fated choices of soccer star Eli Ohana and journalist Yinon Magal for his reserved slots on the party’s Knesset list.  Magal resigned from the Knesset, due to sexual harassment allegations, and Ohana ended up not running, because of an outcry against him within the party.
