Likud convenes ’emergency meeting’ over purported low turnout

Likud continues its campaign of dire warnings of a looming election collapse, widely seen as a bid to increase turnout among its supporters rather than a reflection of actual poll data the party possesses.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, insists otherwise, saying repeatedly today that the party was headed for an election loss that would mean a “left-wing” government rising in its stead.

At 4:30 p.m., Netanyahu’s campaign releases a statement saying the prime minister is now convening an “emergency meeting” at his Jerusalem residence of campaign staffers to decide on next steps to increase turnout.
