Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has backed down for the time being from his proposal to change the Likud constitution.

The central committee had been set to convene at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds on Wednesday night to debate Netanyahu’s plan to delay the election of a new committee by two years, and central committee members were then due to vote at polling stations Thursday.

But the prime minister said Tuesday night that he had decided to wait for an appeal to the Supreme Court of a Tel Aviv District Court ruling that ordered the Likud to set a date for the central committee election in Wednesday’s meeting, and that had left open the possibility that it could invalidate the results if Netanyahu won Thursday’s vote.
