The Likud Secretariat approves a motion banning lawmakers who defected from the party from returning and running in its party primaries for eight years.

The motion will also apply to ministers and MKs who served in past governments led by Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the Ynet news site.

The motion would apply to much of the New Hope party, which is composed of numerous former Likud ministers. It also aims to prevent future defections from Likud.
