Controversial 'Mom of 8' Ousted From Likud Beitenu List

Outspoken MK Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beitenu) announced on Monday evening that she will not be running for the Knesset in January’s election."Following the many calls received by my office, I announce that I will not run in the elections for the 19th Knesset for personal reasons," Michaeli wrote on her Facebook page.

However, despite Michaeli’s statement that she is not running for “personal reasons”, Channel 2 reported Monday that MK Anastassia Michaeli was bascially eliminated from the Israel Beiteinu Knesset List. 

Michaeli's noisy Knesset term left no doubt that Lieberman, who was irked by her actions, would not place her on a realistic spot in the joint likud Beitenu list.
