Erdan praises Netanyahu's decision to advance Likud race

Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan on Monday praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to advance the Likud leadership race to January 31.
In an interview with Israel Radio, Erdan rejected claims that Netanyahu made the decision in order to avoid a crisis in his coalition, stating that the government was very stable.
He added that holding the party's election earlier would allow the Likud more time to become united leading up to general elections.
Erdan stated that the Likud Central Committee, and not Netanyahu has the final say in whether to advance elections and those who wish to challenge the decision should do so through democratic means and not by way of legal action.
