Netanyahu agrees to compromise on Likud primary system

Likud central committee members will be able to elect the party’s regional representatives to the Knesset, according to a compromise Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted Monday.

The party’s primary is currently open to all its members, but MK Dudi Amsalem and Likud central committee members proposed that it revert to the previous process, in which the central committee would choose the list for the Knesset.

Netanyahu strongly opposed the change, but it seemed highly likely to pass anyway, because, as a senior Likud source said, "a central committee member would have to be very noble to not vote to give himself power."
