Immigration and Absorption Minister Yoav Galant (Likud) said he would support Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the upcoming Likud party held primaries, despite the AG's decision to indict him.

The Likud party has scheduled primaries for December 26, 2019.

"The State of Israel is a state of law, and we receive the results of a trial in court," Galant said.

"Every person is innocent until it is decided that he is guilty, including a prime minister with abundant merits, such as Netanyahu.

"I will support him, because he is the right person to lead the State of Israel in strategic issues, foreign diplomacy, security, and the economy. He will bring the right-wing bloc and the Likud to victory."
