Disgruntled Likud ministers don’t openly back Netanyahu primary push

Likud ministers mostly left Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fend for himself this week in convincing central committee members not to cancel the party’s open primaries.

The vote on whether to give the central committee the authority to elect the Likud’s list for future elections or to keep the vote open to all party members, initiated by Knesset Interior Committee chairman Dudi Amsalem and central committee members, will take place next Thursday.

In a meeting with central committee members on Thursday in Ramat Gan, the third this week, just Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Science and Technology Minister Danny Danon joined Netanyahu’s efforts. Immigration and Absorption Minister Ze’ev Elkin participated in a meeting with a smaller forum of Likud chapter chairmen.
