Katz Wins Likud Secretariat, Danon Chairman of Central Committee

JewishPress Logo

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Danon was elected last night to head the Likud central committee. Minister Israel Katz was re-elected chairman of the Likud Secretariat, defeating MK Miri Regev.

Deputy minister Zeev Elkin is the new Likud bureau chief.

The Likud secretariat, which Katz has been running for the past 10 years, is comprised of the party’s Knesset faction as well as major Likud apparatchiks.

Katz was blamed by MK Regev, and by her supporter, Danny Danon, for the Likud’s decline in the last elections. They accused Katz of losing touch with the Likud voters.

Both Regev and Danon are considered to the right of Katz on issues related to Judea and Samaria. But Danon is to the left of Michael Puah, whom he defeated last night, on those same issues.

Minister Katz issued a statement saying he was committed to taking the Likud on a new path, to prepare it for victory come next elections.

  1. Myriam Obadia says:

    Let's be honest. Mr. Katz has nothing to do with the fact that many Israelis are disappointed by Bibi's habit of talking tough and then acting like a pushover for the the US and the EU.

  2. Meanwhile, back here in reality land, many Americans, Jewish and not, are getting sick and tired by Bibi's and Israel's policies that are chewing up the land that would be necessary for a Palestinian State. Will they not rest until the Palestinians are driven to ever more desperate measures? Israel's support here weakens every day.
