Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends to meet with ordinary citizens next week around the country on a “Bibi-bus,” Likud officials said on Thursday.

The bus will make its first stop on Friday in Herzliya without Netanyahu, but with MK Danny Danon. MK Miri Regev’s “Miri-van” will also continue visiting development towns and poor neighborhoods that are the Likud’s traditional electorate.

At a meeting with Likud candidates in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Netanyahu urged his MKs to go to the field and conduct more interviews. He told the candidates he would take how active they are in the campaign into account when he wins the election and distributes portfolios and Knesset committee chairmanships.

Netanyahu used the meeting at his official residence to showcase its poor shape. The state comptroller is to release a report about the residences of the prime minister and president, and the Knesset next week.

Meanwhile, the Zionist Union continued efforts to find a new strategist after its leader, Isaac Herzog, began the process of firing his campaign team.

Reuven Adler, an advertising guru who worked with the late prime minister Ariel Sharon, spoke to the Zionist Union on Thursday, but sources in the party said nothing had been finalized and he is among multiple candidates for the job.
