Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's compromise proposal won Sunday's vote in Likud, changing the system for how the Likud will elect its candidates in the next election.

According to the proposal, the party's top candidates will continue to be chosen by its 100,000 members. But slots reserved for new candidates from specific regions further down the list will be selected by the 3,700-member Likud central committee.

Among the central committee members, 2,689 cast ballots. Netanyahu's proposal received 1,557 votes, which was 57.9 percent.

Likud MK David Amsalem's proposal to enable the central committee to pick the entire Likud list received 1,040 votes, which was 38.7%.
