What are questions that remain for Israel's political parties - analysis
With the primary season over, which questions remain for Israel's political parties?

With the primary elections officially over for those parties that held them – the Likud, Labor, Meretz and the Religious Zionist Party (RZP) – what are some of the central political questions that remain ahead of the 10 p.m., September 15 deadline, when they must hand in their final lists?

The most important question left for Israel’s largest political party is who party chairman Benjamin Netanyahu will choose to fill the spots on the list reserved for him – 14,16, 27, 37 and 43. Current polls have the Likud winning 30 to 35 seats, so only the first three reserved spots have a realistic chance of making it into the next Knesset.

Obvious candidates are the three Yamina renegade MKs, Amichai Chikli, Idit Silman and Nir Orbach. Other names such as former Israeli ambassador to the US Ron Dermer and Brig.-Gen. (res.) Gal Hirsch were also mentioned as options earlier on in the campaign.
