Likud primary ends with more than 58 pc turnout

Polling ended Tuesday night for the list of candidates Binyamin Netanyahu’s Likud party will run for election to the 21st Knesset elections on April 9. The turnout of 58.4pc of the 120,000 registered members was fairly high. The counting of ballots by hand will continue through the night before the figures are loaded on central computers for the total count early Wednesday morning. Netanyahu has asked to reserve the 21st, 28th and 36th spots for fellow right-ring parties in case the newcomer Benny Gantz succeeds in forming a broad bloc of centrist and left-wing parties.
