Netanyahu launches Likud campaign buoyed by departure of right-wing nemesis
Netanyahu officially launched his Likud party’s campaign Monday.
His far-right rival, Likud MK Moshe Feiglin, did not secure a spot on the party list and announced that he would be forming a new political movement.
Netanyahu announced that he plans to back legislation under which the head of Israel's largest party would automatically receive the first chance to form a government.
He lambasted Labor leader Isaac Herzog and Hatnuah leader Tzipi Livni, saying, “They want to capitulate. They just want to withdraw and concede. That has been the left’s path for 20 years now.”
