Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yamina head Ayelet Shaked are planning to host events in English ahead of the September 17 election.

Netanyahu’s event, which requires prior registration, will be held on September 5 at Ramat Gan’s Kfar Hamaccabiah Hotel.

The head of Yamina has two English events upcoming – on Friday night in Jerusalem, and on September 15 in Beit Shemesh.

Naftali Bennett, her co-leader of the New Right party that is running in Yamina, is doing English campaign events in Jerusalem on September 8 and in Gush Etzion on September 12.

The only other head of a party expected to cross the threshold who currently has an English event planned is Stav Shaffir, who will be addressing English-speakers at the Carlton Expresso Bar on Monday, at an event organized by Tel Aviv Internationals. Shaffir is co-leader of the Democratic Union, which placed her second on its list, and heads the Green Party.

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, who held an English campaign event ahead of the April election, is in talks with an organization about hosting another during the current race.

Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor Liberman cancelled an event that had 1,500 people registered ahead of the April election. He has not rescheduled the event.

Labor leader Amir Peretz's spokesman did not respond to a question about whether he would do an event in English.
