Former Likud ministers Silvan Shalom, Limor Livnat, and Dan Naveh convened at Shalom's Ramat Gan home in a secret meeting on Wednesday evening to discuss strategy for overthrowing Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu vowed to remain Likud chairman despite the party's fall from 40 to just 11 Knesset seats under his leadership. But Shalom, Livnat, Naveh and other Likud MKs intend to pressure him to acknowledge his failure in the elections and quit politics. "The nation said no to Netanyahu and not to the Likud, so he has to go," one of the participants said in the meeting. "If he doesn't leave on his own, we will have no choice but to force him out."
