Transportation Minister Israel Katz won a close race in the bitterly fought
contest for the chairmanship of the Likud secretariat on Sunday over MK Miri
Regev, Likud officials said.
Katz’s associates said the victory felt especially good because it
was not only over Regev but also three top Likud ministers who worked against
him: Gideon Sa’ar, Gilad Erdan and Silvan Shalom.
Regev released a statement conceding the race to Katz, and saying that she respected the will of the voters.
"The Likud will come out from this race united and strong in the face of challenges on diplomatic and socioeconomic issues," she said.
