    GC (or whoever you are that hides behind two letters), Meretz was formed in 1992 by an alliance of three left-wing parties; Ratz, Mapam, and Shinui. There were many lives to the original Shinui party. Remember it started by business people and academics in 1974 as Democrats-Shinui, but was soon changed to the Democratic Movement for Change and, as with many parties in Israel, became popularly known by its acronym, Dash. In 1977, it was not the leftist group that remained until joining MERETZ. It had many eversoslightly left of center generals, including Yigael Yadin, Meir Amit , and Shmuel Tamir. In the 80s, the party was renamed Shinui - The Centre Party during certain periods. In the 2003 elections the party won 15 seats, making it the third-largest in the Knesset. in 2003 Ariel Sharon invited the party (15 MKs) to form a secular right-wing coalition, with Shinui taking several key ministerial positions, including the Internal Affairs ministry, a key position in the secular-religious struggle. Shinui presented itself as centrist on security issues.
