Away from the limelight, Binyamin Regional Council head Avi Ro’eh won a quiet electoral victory Monday, when he received an initial nod to replaced Dani Dayan as head of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.

The council secretariat gave its initial approval to Ro’eh, who now needs the approval of the larger administrative body.

He is the only candidate that will be voted on, and it is likely that he would secure the necessary support.

Ro’eh has been on the job since November 2007; replacing long time veteran settler leader Pinchas Wallerstein who had stepped down after 28 years.
