Meretz chairwoman answers Haaretz readers' questions
Zahava Gal-On, the leader of the left-wing Meretz party, is holding a live Q&A with Haaretz readers. She talks about the status of civil rights in Israel, the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace and preventing Netanyahu from winning the elections.
Zahava Gal-On is the leader of Israel's left-wing Meretz party, that in the 2009 elections reached an all-time low with a mere three seats, barely passing the electoral threshold. Polls predict a better result for January 22 elections, but it still falls far short of the 12 seats it won in 1992.
