Moshe Feiglin, head of the Likud's Jewish Leadership faction, may have lost the battle to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but a morning after the primaries he says he feels like a winner.

 

"We landed a great achievement; our way is the winning way and eventually it will take the lead," he said in a conversation with Ynet. "We've cracked the Likud DNA and managed to reach wide circles of Likud voters," he said.

One in every four registered Likud members voted for Feiglin, who claims that his voting rates inside Israel and beyond the Green Line were the same.

 

"These weren’t easy primaries for us. We are competing against an incumbent prime minister. Last time I was up against MK Netanyahu the Likud was in the Opposition with 12 mandates," Feiglin noted.

 

The Likud hardliner maintained that "the entire mechanism is working in favor of the prime minister and no one dared to take up the gauntlet and contend against him. This proves our remarkable achievement."

 

On Tuesday, Feiglin requested to extend voting in West bank polling stations after they were opened two hours behind schedule. Feiglin claimed that many Likud voters in those areas were unable to cast their vote, resulting in low voting rates, because there was no register at the polling station.

 

Asked about his next step, Feiglin said he plans to continue his race to the top: "I will contend for a place on the list as means to promote an alternative for the leadership of the Likud and the country.
