Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to launch the next stage of Likud’s campaign, which includes a special television edition and an attack on various political figures, the newspaper Yom Le’Yom reported.

A special television edition will be broadcast every evening with the participation of ministers and Knesset members from the Likud. The evening broadcast will be published via Netanyahu’s Facebook page.

The new campaign, like last week’s billboard attacking journalists, will be an attack on the media. Last week, the Likud put up a billboard on the Ayalon Highway with photos of journalists and the words, “They won’t decide.”

Following the billboard’s appearance, a video appeared on Netanyahu’s Facebook page with the message: “For three years the Left and the media have been hounding the attorney-general to submit an indictment at any cost.”


The campaign’s next stage will bring former prime ministers Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak into the spotlight, according to the report. Both men have strongly criticized Netanyahu’s conduct in past years.

The Likud is the only major party running in the April 9 election that hasn’t signed the covenant promising to refrain from digital manipulation. Supreme Court Justice Hanan Melcer, Chairman of the Central Elections Committee, is expected to force the Likud to sign the covenant.

Lahav Harkov and Gil Hoffman contributed to this report.
