Israeli opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu cast his vote on Wednesday in the Likud Party primaries to choose the party's candidates for the Knesset's elections.

"We need a strong party list to avoid a sixth election," Netanyahu shared following his vote, according to the Israeli Walla! news website.

The Likud Party list features an abundance of names, as there are 27 current Knesset members and new candidates, such as former ambassador, Danny Danon, and Gilad Sharon, the son of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

On Tuesday, the Tel Aviv District Court annulled Dudu Laniado's nomination on the Likud list. Laniado was previously convicted of attacking homes and assaulting a woman and police officer. The court order came after an appeal submitted by party leader Netanyahu, which came a day after the Likud court approved his candidacy.
