Will Shelly Yacimovich Make Labor Party History?

Yacimovich might have what it takes to become the first Labor Party leader in 12 years to win a second consecutive term - unless MK Isaac Herzog boots her out.

The press conference on Monday in which Labor MKs Eitan Cabel and Erel Margalit declared their support for MK Isaac Herzog’s bid for the Labor Party chairmanship added some spice to the otherwise moribund primary campaign. Herzog intends to challenge Labor Party chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich in the November 21 vote to determine who will lead the party for the next three years.
