The Likud primary is taking place Tuesday at 113 polling stations across the country, from Eilat in the South to Kiryat Shmona in the North. The competition in the largest party in Israel is as stiff as it’s ever been, with 142 people vying for slots on the Likud list - that is five candidates for every one of the expected 30 seats at which the party has been polling fairly consistently.Many candidates first prepared for the day by visiting the Western Wall or praying at synagogue. Then, they went to the voting booths to cast their ballots.
