Yisrael Beytenu to Present Knesset List Tuesday


The Yisrael Beytenu party is scheduled to announce its candidate list for January's Knesset election on Tuesday. The roster will be merged with the Likud list decided upon last week, based on the parties' current representation.

Yair Shamir, son of former prime minister Yitzchak Shamir, is expected to be placed in the second position, behind Party Chairman Avigdor Lieberman and ahead of most of the incumbents. It is not know who will replace Member of Knesset Anastassia Michaeli, who announced, Monday, that she is not running.
