Israel's right-wing party Likud will hold internal elections on Aug. 14, local daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Tuesday.

The Likud Central Committee on Tuesday approved party chairman Benjamin Netanyahu's proposal to push forward the internal elections, and decided that the primaries would be held on Aug. 14.

If a second round is required, it will take place a week later on Aug. 21, the report said.

Following Knesset(parliament) member(MK) Silvan Shalom's withdrawal from the race for Likud leader on Monday, the only other contender against Netanyahu is Moshe Feiglin, head of the extreme-rightist "Jewish Leadership" faction of the party.

At the party's meeting in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu was quoted as telling the central committee members that "we believe that we can take the country out of the mud, we can take a different road."
