Ya'alon Suggests Continuing Primaries Manually

Prime Minister and Likud Party Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu was scheduled, Sunday afternoon, to discuss a proposal by Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon to stop the computerized voting for the Likud Knesset list because of the computer problems that have prevented people from voting. Ya'alon has also suggested that the voting continue manually in the next few days, possibly next week. Ya'alon said, Sunday afternoon, that he had talked to Netanyahu, and that under his proposal, anyone whose vote had been recorded would not have to vote again.

Arutz Sheva reporter Yoni Kempinski reported that precinct workers at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds were ready to fold up shop and close the voting. Earlier, the editor of an unofficial Likud Website expected the hours of the primaries to be extended, with the possibility of another day of voting.
