Likud chairman Benjamin Netanyahu congratulates party members for electing an “excellent team” in yesterday’s primary elections.

In a message reported by Army Radio, Netanyahu adds, “I also want to thank those who did not enter [the Knesset], although you have to remember — there is always the Norwegian law.” The aforementioned legislation allows ministers to resign from the Knesset and give their spot to the next person in line on their party’s list.

“I remind you that we are still in campaign discipline and ask you to adhere to it,” Netanyahu says, urging party members to toe the line.
