Moshe Feiglin To Run on Likud Party Ticket


Activist Moshe Feiglin will once again run on the Likud Party ticket. His Jewish leadership faction of the Likud Party has championed the rights of residents of Judea and Samaria among other issues. In an interview with Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday, Feiglin stated that he believes he has a good chance of being elected and will run for a place in the top 19. Although Likud has reserved for a resident of Judea and Samaria, that spot is approximatly 30 on the list. In the 2009 elections Likud won 27 seats out of a possible 120 Knesset seats.

Feiglin became the first Israeli to be convicted of sedition for leading protests against the surrender of land as part of the Oslo Accords in the 1990s. He later shifted his focus to the Knesset under the philisophy of changing the system from within using one of Israel's largest and most diverse parties.
