Former interior minister Gideon Sa'ar is not challenging Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Likud leadership, he announced on Thursday.

Sa'ar's announcement came a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received a big boost inside his Likud party Wednesday when he succeeded in passing a proposal on how and when to elect the party's MKs.

Netanyahu's proposal passed by a vote of 1567 to 835, indicating that he maintains a strong grip over the party ahead of the Likud leadership race, which the proposal advanced to December 31. On that date, the Likud will also elect its Knesset list, which will include two slots that will be reserved for the party leader to select his own candidates who will not have to run in the primary.
