Netanyahu asks Danon to delay Likud central c’tee meeting

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday called Likud MK Danny Danon and asked him to delay a party central committee meeting scheduled for Thursday, where the Likud was expected to vote on a proposal to end the construction freeze in September and start building in the West Bank.
Netanyahu said that he was making the request because of the sensitivity of the topic and his upcoming visit to the United States. Danon was considering Netanyahu’s request.
MK Danon obtained the necessary signatures of Likud Central Committee members to force a meeting of the committee on Netanyahu.  The meeting was also supposed to be a pre-Passover toast, which Netanyahu always does for Likud activists
