PM May Not Support Any Presidential Candidate


Members of the political system estimate that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not officially support any of the candidates for the upcoming presidential elections. If this is true, MK Reuven Rivlin will become the only candidate representing the Likud party in the running for the position.

Sources within the Likud party told Israel Hayom that in light of MK Silvan Shalom’s decision not to run for president, Rivlin’s chances of winning the race skyrocketed.
