Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked the Supreme Court on Tuesday to allow him to delay an election for a new Likud central committee from April 28 to 2012, appealing a decision last week by the Tel Aviv District Court.

In the appeal, Netanyahu wrote that it would be too difficult logistically to prepare for the election on such short notice. He also said the district court should not have interfered in an internal Likud matter.

The court will hear the case on March 25. MK Danny Danon, who defeated Netanyahu in the District Court case, said he hoped that Netanyahu would realize that he has no chance of winning and would drop the appeal.
