The Likud is set to launch its primary election on Wednesday, after safety concerns related to Operation Breaking Dawn abated following the announcement on Sunday night of a cease-fire going into effect. With an expected 35 seats in the upcoming election according to recent polls, Likud is by far the largest party holding a primary election. Approximately 140,000 members are eligible to vote, and there are some 140 candidates. Here is what to look out for:

First, of course, is who will win the top spots. The battle here is between MKs who are close to Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu, such as MKs Yariv Levin, former Transportation and Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev, Galit Distal Atbaryan, Dudi Amsalem and former Justice and Public Security Minister Amir Ohana, and those who are seen as potential future leaders of the Likud, such as former Transportation and Finance Minister MK Yisrael Katz, former Knesset Speaker and Health Minister MK Yuli Edelstein and Nir Barkat. MK Eli Cohen is also a frontrunner, according to a source in the Likud.
