Welfare Minister Haim Katz announced Monday afternoon that he is seeking the chairman of the Likud Central Committee.

The influential post gives power to decide the policies of the Likud together with party leader Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Katz is running against MKs Tzahi Hanegbi, Yaron Mazuz, David Amsalem and Navah Boker. 

Katz is thought to have the edge in the race because he is backed by top Likud figures including Transportation Minister Israel Katz, and Science and Technology Minister Ophir Akunis as well as a large camp within the central committee.
