A vote by Likud's 3,700 central committee members on whether or not to move up the Likud leadership race from January 6 to December 31, is being contested inside the Likud courts.

Former interior minister Gideon Sa’ar came out against Netanyahu's proposal, telling journalists at a Tel Aviv polling station that it was wrong to change the rules of the game, in the middle of the game.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's former No. 2 in the Likud needs to decide by Sunday whether to join the party’s leadership race.

Netanyahu’s proposal for how to elect the party’s Knesset candidates is also being voted on, a step that would enable the prime minister to reserve slots on the Likud list for candidates of his choosing.

The central committee will make a decision on Thursday.
