      Livnat: Large Turnout Needed to Reflect Likud Reality


      Minister Limor Livnat said, Tuesday morning, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will defeat Moshe Feiglin by a wide margin in Tuesday's Likud primaries to retain the chairmanship of the party. Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, Livnat added that if enough of the 125,000 registered members of the party do not come out to vote, the results won't reflect the gap between the two candidates or the position of most of the members of the party.

      The party's 500 polling places around the country are scheduled to be open from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Also at stake are a number of local party offices.
