Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided Wednesday to fill two slots on the Likud list reserved for candidates of his choosing with women who teach at Israeli institutions of higher learning.

The 11th slot on the list will go to Dr. Anat Berko, world-renowned terrorism expert who teaches at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center's Lauder School of Government.

Netanyahu gave the 23rd slot to Dr. Limor Samimian-Darash, an assistant professor at the Federman School of Public Policy and Government at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Both appointments are pending approval by the Likud secretariat, which convened Wednesday but delayed a secret-ballot vote to Thursday for technical reasons. The secretariat asked the women to address the body before the vote takes place.
