Likud comptroller: Netanyahu's conduct toward party primary could disqualify him

December 19, 2014 10:23

The Likud comptroller has called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a hearing that could disqualify the premier's candidacy as faction chairman.

A document dated December 16 was issued by the faction's comptroller Shai Galili accuses Netanyahu of using party resources to advance his candidacy in the Likud primaries.

According to Galili's claim, the prime minister was suspected of breaching Likud law by utilizing party employees and resources for his own personal promotion ahead of the Likud leadership race when he held a conference for activists and Likud branch leaders at the party headquarters in Tel Aviv with the help of salaried Likud workers.

The Likud comptroller invited Netanyahu to an oral or written legal hearing "in light of the serious blow against party equality and law."
