      Likud Committee Rejects Reserved Place for Benny Begin

      The Elections Committee of the Likud party rejected, Monday, a petition guarantee a Knesset seat to Minister without Portfolio Benny Begin.

      The petition was initiated after Begin did not receive enough votes in last week's Likud primary to qualify for a spot on the ballot where he could reasonably expect to be re-elected. Begin reacted to the petition by saying he did not want to change the order of the ballot as selected by the party's eligible voters.
