Jewish Home party to choose leader on April 27

Elections for the leadership of the Jewish Home party will be held on April 27, the party says.

Current party leader Naftali Bennett is widely expected to win reelection. Bennett had asked for primaries to be moved up Wednesday.

The move is widely seen as a political maneuver made in the expectation that new national elections could be in the offing.
