Likud Candidates to Address English Speakers at Event


The Achdut VeEmuna organization will host a question and answer session in English with Likud party candidates. The event will take place Tuesday Nov 13th at the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem at 6:30pm. 

Primaries for the Likud party will be held November 25th. Any Israeli citizen can join the party for a nominal membership fee and vote in the primaries. Voters must be members for at least a year and a half first. The primaries will determine how far up on the list each candidate will be, with the exception of reserved seats for women, minorities and other special demographics. In the 2009 elections, Likud received 27 seats. Thus any candidates below 27 on the party list did not become Members of Knesset.
