Moshe Feiglin asked for a two-hour extension in the Likud primary voting, scheduled to close at 10:00 p.m. Tuesday.

Feiglin, main rival to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the Likud leadership, had voiced concerns about a deliberate campaign to prevent his supporters from voting. Specifically, he cited a lack of proper voting materials at ballot boxes in Judea and Samaria that were preventing Likud members from voting at those polling places.

As of 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 17,500 people had cast their votes in the election, some 14 percent of the 125,000 eligible voters.
