Feiglin announces willingness to drop candidacy

Likud activist Moshe Feiglin announced that he would drop his candidacy for the Knesset pending a ruling by the head of the Likud's election committee, former Tel Aviv District Court judge Tzvi Cohen, declaring his candidacy legitimate. At the Sunday morning press conference, Feiglin accused Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu of wasting two weeks since his election as party leader by conducting a witch-hunt against him instead of attacking Kadima. At the press conference, a Feiglin associate also accused Education Minister Limor Livnat and other Likud leaders of anti-Semitism in their pursuit of Feiglin's faction, Manhigut Yehudit.
