Outgoing Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin will announce his plans for his political future at a meeting with supporters Monday night, he wrote on his Facebook page Friday morning.
“I am honored to invite you to a meeting of supporters to explain how we will continue. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday in Jerusalem at a place to be announced later,” Feiglin wrote.
Likud party primary elections voters Wednesday night dumped Feiglin to an unrealistic spot on the party’s list of candidates, much to the delight of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Jewish Home party.
The Prime Minister did not like Feiglin’s clear-spoken views that give the Likud an image of being “too” right wing. The Jewish Home party is likely to pick up at least one if not more seats in the Knesset from voters who would not vote Likud unless Feiglin had a good chance of being elected.
Another factor in the Jewish Home party’s favor is that Likud voters also dropped popular right-winger Tzipi Hotovely from the list of realistic candidate, further distancing strong nationalists from voting for the Likud party.
