In recent days a number of Likud party members identified with the New Likudniks group have been expelled from the party.

The New Likudniks , who claim to have the support of 10 percent of  Likud members, are demanding that PM Netanyahu step down immediately, claiming he has become a burden on the party and the right-wing bloc.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Nir Hirschman, one of the leaders of the New Likudniks.
