Shalom to Take Legal Action Against Early Primaries


Minister Silvan Shalom clarified on Sunday night that he intends to take legal action against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to hold the Likud primaries earlier than scheduled.

“Primaries are scheduled to take place up to six months before the election and not two years before,” Shalom said. “This is unacceptable to me and I will use the legal process to work against this decision.”
