November 25, 2012 00:44

Southern Likud activists released lists of recommended candidates in light of Operation Pillar of Defense and the security situation in the South.

The "Your Path-Our Path” group put out one of the many lists of recommended primary candidates disseminated in recent days, this time based on a poll of party members in the area.

Southern Likud members support Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter, who moved to Likud from Kadima, Vice Premier Silvan Shalom, Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel, and MKs Ofir Akunis, Danny Danon, Carmel Shama-Hacohen and Aleli Admasu, as well as several newcomers: Gabi Avital, Tzipi Gordin and Shimon Sarel.

Nearly every list of recommended candidates released last week included Ya’alon.

Many Likud activists believe and hope that Ya’alon, a former IDF chief of staff, will replace Defense Minister Ehud Barak in the next Knesset if he gets a high slot on the party’s list.
