A delegation from the Likud will fly to Strasbourg on Monday at the invitation of the European Conservatives and Reformists faction in the European Parliament.
The delegation will explain the Likud’s policies to a group of 15 ECR members of Parliament. The ECR hopes to reach an agreement with the Likud that would enable it to become one of the ECR’s “regional members,” which would allow Likud representatives to attend ECR faction meetings and influence its policies.
“This is a significant step, because at a time of boycotts of Israel, the Likud will be added to a group in Europe that has power,” said Eli Hazan, the Likud’s deputy director- general for public and foreign relations.
