Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cast his vote at Likud Party headquarters in Tel Aviv, Thursday morning.

The vote will determine whether or not the Likud constitution will be changed to allow the party to hold internal elections up to three years following general elections. Any amendment to the constitution requires a two-thirds majority, and with many party activists opposing the change, the amendment seems unlikely to pass.

Netanyahu held a press conference as voting began, calling upon party members to go to the polls to help push off the internal elections.

“I trust the members, and I believe in them that they will do what needs to be done,”
said Netanyahu.
