Likud MK Danny Danon appealed to the Likud’s internal court on Tuesday, asking it to force Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to convene the Likud central committee to debate the West Bank construction moratorium.

Danon submitted the necessary signatures to convene the forum two months ago and the chairman of the central committee, Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon, said there would be a meeting on January 28. But Kahlon needs authorization from Netanyahu to schedule a meeting unless it is ordered by the courts.

"The construction freeze goes against the policies of the Likud and I am sure the central committee will give its uncompromising support to the residents of Judea and Samaria,” Danon said. “It is unfortunate that I have been forced to use legal means to enforce the Likud’s values.”
