TEL AVIV, December 15, 2011--Several Likud Anglos activists attended the meeting of the Central Committee to learn about the inner workings of the Likud and talk with Members of Knesset and important Likud members about Likud Anglos and its mission.
The Central Committee approved the changes requested by the Prime Minister, to enlarge the representation of city-residents on the Central Committee (aimed at lessening the representation of settlement-residents, who were given greater representation on the Committee) and to advance the date of the primary for the Chairmanship of the Likud to January 31st, the date of the Central Committee elections.

Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom who intended on running for the position of Likud chairman had opposed the change when Netanyahu initially announced it, and was not present at the convention. Moshe Feiglin, who said he will still be running, said the decision was “not exactly democracy at its best.”
