Ex-minister Herzog to Take on Labor Leader Yacimovich in Party Primary

Isaac Herzog and two senior Labor Party colleagues blame incumbent Shelly Yacimovich for shunning the peace process. The leadership contest is set for November 21.

Labor MK Isaac Herzog said Monday he would challenge party leader Shelly Yacimovich in the November 21 primary, with senior MKs Erel Margalit and Eitan Cabel backing him up in a bid to make the party more of a team effort.
