Likud: The Next Generation

Tzipi HotovelyDanny Danon

David Hazony gives an overview of some of the up and coming members of Likud in the context of tomorrow's conference on “Alternatives to the Two-State Outlook”:
the conference being held at the initiative of Likud MK and former TV personality Tzipi Hotovely. Hotovely, just 30 years old, is a rising star on the Israeli political scene, and represents a whole new generation of young Likud leaders, including Danny Danon, Gilad Erdan, and Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar [see here]. These under-45s are all dynamic, well-spoken people who take the grunt-work of parliament seriously. They are, in all likelihood, the future of Likud.
Hotovely has her own website (Hebrew), in addition to her Knesset website. Danon also has his own website (English and Hebrew) besides his Knesset website. Erdan and Sa'ar seem to only have Knesset websites.

There is no arguing with Hazony on the need for fresh new faces:
Part of a party’s success depends on its ability to speak to a younger generation of voters, and give them a sense of where the future lies. Don’t be fooled by campaign cameos of the likes of Benny Begin and Dan Meridor. Keep your eyes on the other Tzipi and her friends.
Tomorrow's conference will be an opportunity to do just that.
