An activist loyal to Likud leadership candidate Moshe Feiglin filed a police complaint Thursday alleging that votes in Beit Shemesh's polling stations were stolen from Feiglin and given to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the January 31 party primary.

Moshe Chaim Wolf, in his capacity as the official voting observer for Feiglin in Beit Shemesh, presented numbers indicating that Feiglin beat Netanyahu in the city by 214 votes. His numbers were certified by lawyers working at the polls. But the Likud's official numbers indicate that Feiglin only defeated Netanyahu in Beit Shemesh by 50 votes.

"We plan to fight for every vote," Feiglin said.

A Likud spokeswoman said in response that the issue was being dealt with in ongoing meetings of the Likud elections committee, in which Feiglin's representatives were taking part.
