Likud polls open; Netanyahu calls press conference

As the polls opened in an important Likud Party vote, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held a press conference, calling upon party members to go to the polls to help push off internal elections.
“I trust the members, and I believe in them that they will do rise and do what needs to be done,” Netanyahu told the press.
“We are a national movement started by Menachem Begin; we are for the state and for the IDF and for true peace, and that is what we have to focus on,” Netanyahu said. “If the vote does not go as I want it to, we will have to dedicate months to an internal process in the Likud, and now is not the time to do that.”
