      Ketzaleh: Poll Signals Netanyahu Demise

      National Union leader MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) said Wednesday that a new poll showing a downward turn for Likud signals the beginning of the end for Binyamin Netanyahu's leadership.

      The poll, which was carried out by Dialogue for Haaretz, shows that if elections were held today and Shelly Yechimovich were to head Labor, Labor would receive 22 Knesset seats – 11 more than it received in the last elections. The list headed by Labor's former leader Ehud Barak would not make it into the Knesset.
