Netanyahu and Edelstein.

The chairman of the opposition and the Likud, MK Benjamin Netanyahu, this week met with fellow Likud MK Yuli Edelstein, Channel 12 News reported on Friday. The meeting is somewhat surprising given that Edelstein recently openly announced during a television interview that he would run against Netanyahu for the leadership of the Likud and even criticized him saying, "We will never return to power with him - we failed four times, how will we suddenly succeed a fifth time?"

According to Channel 12 News, Edelstein met with Netanyahu in his office in the Knesset and the two spoke for more than an hour at the meeting which was defined as "long and good." The two reportedly discussed Netanyahu and Edelstein's desire to move up the primaries in the Likud to the beginning of next year. Edelstein is interested in this move in order to cement his position in the party as Netanyahu’s heir apparent even if he loses in the primaries.
