Israeli-American Nobel Prize laureate Yisrael (Robert) Aumann has officially registered as a supporter of the opposition Likud party, saying he is doing so to support former MK Uzi Dayan in future party primaries.

The 91-year-old, who won the Nobel in Economic Sciences in 2005, says after joining Benjamin Netanyahu’s party that Dayan is an “excellent” candidate. Dayan thanks him in a statement of his own.
