Likud Central Committee head says he sees no need for leadership primary

Likud MK Haim Katz, who heads the party’s Central Committee, says he doesn’t see a need for the party to hold it’s leadership primary.

“I don’t see any need for a Likud leadership primary because Netanyahu’s leadership can’t be undercut and no one in Likud will dare to come out against him,” Katz is quoted saying by Hebrew media.

“I’ll discuss the matter this evening with the prime minister. If he believes primaries should be held we’ll do so in a quick, clean and democratic process,” he adds.

The Central Committee is the top decision-making body in Likud and has the authority to call leadership primaries.
