MK Eldad: Hanegbi will Bring Disgrace to the Likud


Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) reacted to reports that former Member of Knesset Tzachi Hanegbi would lead a group of Knesset members from Kadima to Likud by saying that Hanegbi would also bring disgrace to the Likud.

Hanegbi was elected to the Knesset in 1988 on the Likud ticket and followed former prime minister Ariel Sharon shortly after the founding of the Kadima party. A court found Hanegbi guilty of perjury and moral turpitude while acquitting him of corruption charges almost two years ago, causing him to resign his Knesset seat.
