    Netanyahu's two challengers are Moshe Feiglin, a Jewish nationalist candidate, and Danny Danon, a junior Likud politician.

    Israeli general elections are due in 2010 but, with Olmert's near record low approval ratings, some commentators anticipate a face-off between him and Netanyahu as early as next year.

    Olmert is leader of the centrist Kadima party.
