Likud: Trying to Rein in Netanyahu


Several members of the Likud, hesitant to allocate places for Yisrael Beytenu Chairman Avigdor Libermand and his people, are submitting a series of proposals to the party's Legislative Committee which are intended to curb Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu's actions and undermine his authority, according to reports in Israel Today.

Tomorrow (Thursday) the Committee is scheduled to convene again in order to vote on the proposals, of which several are expected to pass.

One of the proposals being submitted states that those who have already been elected twice to Likud leadership will have to be re-elected by a  60% majority for a third term, which directly relates to Netanyahu who is the sole candidate that already has been elected twice.
