Jerusalem, Israel:  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu easily won a primary vote to remain leader of the ruling rightwing Likud party ahead of a snap election on March 17, the group's spokeswoman said on Thursday.

"With nearly 60 percent of the ballots counted, Benjamin Netanyahu took 80 percent of the vote and Danny Danon (his only rival) 20 percent," Noga Katz told AFP, adding that the final results will be known later Thursday.
