Likud MKs: Netanyahu Working to Defeat Rivlin

Maariv/NRG quoted Knesset members from Likud as saying Tuesday morning that people from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's immediate circle have been pressuring them to vote for MK Meir Sheetrit (Hatnua) in the presidential ballot, and not for their own party member, MK Reuven Rivlin.

One of the MKs reportedly said that Netanyahu's men have been conducting numerous phone calls with various MKs, imploring them to vote for the rival party's candidate. "It is simply amazing how much Ruby Rivlin is hated in Netanyahu's circle – to the extent that they are willing to cause a Likud candidate for president lose the race, just because of personal animosity toward him,” said a Likud MK.
