The primary, in which 96,651 members were eligible to vote, was the first electoral hurdle for Netanyahu, who is hoping to secure a third consecutive term in office. Political analysts say Netanyahu is expected to win the vote in the face of a single challenger, Danny Danon, a former deputy defence minister and outspoken member of Likud party’s far-right fringe.
