Consider this to be a time-out for the sovereignty bill, as the vast majority of the coalition still supports it. Meanwhile, the Netanyahu circle will have to come up with fresh excuses ahead of the next debate.
Ze'ev Elkin, 46, is one of the natural candidates to replace the PM one of these days.
The discussions in each Likud institution will include a vote on a call to Prime Minister Netanyahu to remove Ya'alon from his post as Defense Minister.
Israel's political party conventions make the Knesset seem polite and tame. At the Likud Central Committee convention the other day, the vote for PM Netanyahu's proposal for the Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu to run together in the upcoming election was conducted by a "show of hands" popular vote. Not the best way to hold a vote.
In an unexpected move, 10% of the Likud Central Committee members gathered enough signatures to demand a secret ballot on whether or not to run on a joint list with Yisrael Beiteinu.
UPDATE: About 100 Likud Central Committee members have been refused entrance into the hall where the vote on the next President of the Likud convention is to be held. Police say the Exhibition Gardens hall in north Tel Aviv is too small for the number of committee members who are entitled to come in and vote.
