The race for Knesset Speaker heated up in Likud Beytenu this week, with Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein campaigning to replace Reuven Rivlin, who hoped to continue after holding the post in the 18th Knesset.

Edelstein has been talking Likud Beytenu faction members to convince them to vote for him, and hopes to meet with all 31 of the list's MKs before the coalition is formed and they vote for the next Speaker.
