PM dismisses reports Kahlon considering forming new party

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday dismissed reports that former Likud Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon was considering starting his own party, according to Army Radio.
Following his meeting in Paris with French President Francois Hollande, Netanyahu revealed that Kahlon had "told me clearly that he would remain in the Likud...and I believe he will."
Netanyahu's comments followed reports that Kahlon recently commissioned a survey of potential voters, which showed that a party at his lead would win 20 seats in the next Knesset.
Kahlon earlier this month said that he would not be running in the upcoming election.
