Netanyahu re-elected head of Israel's ruling Likud

Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu delivers a victory speech in Tel AvivIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won another term as leader of the ruling rightwing Likud party ahead of a snap election, the faction said Thursday, easily defeating his lone hard-right challenger. A party primary took place Wednesday ahead of early elections, in which Netanyahu, in power since 2009, will seek to win a third straight term and a fourth in total. With 60 percent of ballots counted, all indications were that Netanyahu won some 80 percent of the vote compared to Danny Danon, from the party’s far-right fringe, a party spokeswoman said. “It is a list of a governing party that can continue to lead Israel… that will help us defeat the left under Tzipi (Livni) and Bujie (Isaac Herzog), a winning team that will help me return and continue to lead Israel in security, with responsibility in the spirit of the true Likud,” he said.
