Moledet leader Benny Elon and MK Aryeh Eldad will face off on Sunday in what is expected to be a stormy meeting of the governing executive of Moledet, one of the parties that make up the National Union-National Religious Party.
Eldad caused an uproar in the party two weeks ago when he called for Elon to resign for the NU-NRP's failure to increase strength in the March election, which he blamed on the party's focus on national-religious voters.
Elon responded that the non-religious Right might not be worth a single mandate. A report on what went wrong in the election will be presented at the meeting.
