Report: No Yisrael Beytenu Bloc Vote for President


Chairman Avigdor Liberman of the Yisrael Beytenu party will allow his party's Knesset members to vote as they see fit, according to a Monday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily. He will also refrain from endorsing any candidate although it is believed he favors former Knesset speaker Dalia Itzik.

It is believed that the main beneficiaries of the decision are frontrunners Reuven Rivlin and Binyamin Ben-Eliezer.
