Former Likud Knesset members who have left the Likud will not be allowed to run again with the party, according to a new proposal drafted by MK Miki Zohar. The proposal, which will be brought to the Likud’s institutions, is intended to block the return of Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar (New Hope), Construction Minister Ze’ev Elkin (New Hope) and New Hope faction chairwoman Sharren Haskel. It would not apply to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett (Yamina), Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) or Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman, who were members of Likud but never MKs with the party before they formed their own lists following personal disputes with Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu.

“They used the Likud and threw us away,” Likud MK David Amsalem said in a conversation with Zohar about the bill that was revealed by KAN. Zohar wants to change the Likud constitution to prevent a Sa’ar comeback in the post-Netanyahu era, as well as to deter others from following in Sa’ar’s footsteps.
