The Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday rejected an appeal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's opponents in Likud who asked to postpone the Likud leadership and Knesset primary that is set for Wednesday.
The decision by Judge Michal Agmon means that the race for both the Knesset and Likud leader will be that day, pending an appeal to the Supreme Court.
A source close to Likud central committee members who filed the appeal said it is unlikely that they will appeal Agmon's decision to the Supreme Court.
The only challenger against Netanyahu for Likud leader will be MK Danny Danon.
