Former Likud Knesset members who have left the Likud will not be allowed to run again with the party for at least eight years, according to a new proposal that passed by the Likud secretariat at Ramat Gan’s Kfar Hamaccabiah Hotel on Thursday. The proposal is intended to block the return of New Hope ministers and MKs Gideon Sa’ar, Ze’ev Elkin, Sharren Haskel, Benny Begin and Michal Shir. It is also aimed at deterring current Likud MKs from leaving the party to join the coalition and receive cabinet seats. The Knesset passed a law enabling four MKs to break off from a large faction like Likud.

It also singles out anyone who formed or joined a government that sent the Likud to the opposition, including Prime Minister Naftali Bennett (Yamina), Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) or Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu). The three were members of Likud but never MKs with the party before they formed their own lists following personal disputes with Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu. The proposal also applies to anyone who called to vote for another party for Knesset.
