Danon ally to succeed him as head of World Likud

The fight to succeed incoming ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon as head of the Likud central committee and science and technology minister has just begun, but one of his successors has already been decided.

Danon’s deputy in the World Likud, Yaakov Hagoel, will take his role at the helm of the international body of Israel’s ruling party, completing his term that will last another five years. Hagoel is a longtime political partner of Danon who ran with him on a joint ticket at the last Likud convention.

This is Danon’s third term as head of World Likud since beating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s close ally Yuval Steinitz for the post in 2006.
