Court rules that PM can determine agenda for next Likud convention, but Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon may also present alternative agenda.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu emerged victorious in his battle against the Likud Central Committee chairman Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon at the Supreme Court in Jerusalem on Monday.

The Court ruled that Netanyahu can determine the agenda for the next Likud convention that is expected to take place on March 23rd in Tel Aviv. But judges Elykam Rubenstein, Yoram Danzinger and Yitzhak Amit ruled that Danon can present an alternative proposal for the agenda at the convention.

If Danon succeeds in passing an alternative agenda at the convention, he can pass proposals opposing territorial concessions and preventing a merger with Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party.
