Arab-Jewish Meretz leadership candidates exit race, endorse Zandberg

The committee is set to vote on its leader on June 27 and its list on July 11. The two votes will be held within the party committee, which has about 1,000 members.

The faction made the decision after 60 percent of the party voted against motions to hold open primaries or to freeze the current list.

That decision was seen as a failure for Zandberg, and for the current list of candidates, whose posts are now in jeopardy.

U.S. Urged to Respond to DPRK’s Measures with Sincerity: KCNA Commentary

Americans have to ponder over the destiny and prospect of their country, clearly understanding the deep meaning enshrined in the crucial measure of the DPRK, before going rude.

To build a peaceful world without war is the goal of the WPK and it is the consistent stand of our Party and government to struggle for the regional and global peace and security.

The April plenary meeting more evidently clarified the stand and will of the DPRK to open up a new phase for peace in the Korean peninsula and, furthermore, in Northeast Asia. This also conforms with not only the interests of the Korean nation and the regional people but also the common expectation of the international community.

It is the voice of the world public opinion that as the DPRK took an epoch-making measure, this should naturally be responded with sincerity for the development of the situation, not missing the opportunity.
