Young social activist Itzik Shmuli tops Labor primary after Gabbay
The Labor primary ended on Monday with a 56 percent turnout of its 60,000 registered members placing a young social activist Itzik Shmuli at the top of the list for the April 9 election – after the party leader Avi Gabbay. He was followed by Staf Shaffir and then two veterans lawmakers Shelly Yechimovitch and Amir Peretz, both former party leaders, in the next two spots. Omar Bar-Lev came next, then Revital Sweid and Party Secretary Eran Hermony. Eytan Kabel, opponent of the party leader Gabbay, dropped to an unrealistic position on the list.
