The fate of Likud activist Moshe Feiglin remained unresolved on Wednesday after Tel Aviv District Court Deputy President Yehooda Zaft returned a case that could decide whether Feiglin will enter the Knesset to the party's internal court. The appeal to the district court was filed by former Likud MK Michael Ratzon, who along with Feiglin and former MK Ehud Yatom was demoted to lower positions on the party's Knesset slate by the Likud election committee two weeks ago. The district court said the Likud court had to deal with the matter on Thursday and then the district court would reconvene on Friday. Both Ratzon's attorney, Ilan Bombach, and the Likud claimed victory. Bombach called the court's ruling "a significant achievement," but Likud officials pointed out that the judge wrote that he did not want to interfere in an internal party matter. The Tel Aviv District Court rejected an appeal on Wednesday by Russian-born Vladimir Shklar, who asked the judges to reinstate him in an immigrant slot on the Likud's Knesset slate that is currently occupied by Ethiopian oleh Aleli Admasu. Shklar argued unsuccessfully that Admasu had moved to Israel too long ago (1983) to qualify as an immigrant. But the court decided that Admasu had received special permission from the Likud election committee before the December 8 primary to run for the slot.
