Democratic Union Party needs an Arab candidate, Zandberg vows

MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) called on Saturday for the Democratic Union Party to add an Arab-Israeli to the list during a panel in Baqa al-Gharbiyye.
Zandberg, whose Meretz Party joined forces with the party led by former prime minister Ehud Barak and MK Stav Shaffir, vowed she will do all that is possible to ensure that there is an Arab member at the top of the list.

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.

Meretz party convention votes for closed primary, reversing previous policy

Current Meretz chair MK Tamar Zandberg faces at least one challenger in former party MK Nitzan Horowitz who announced he was running for the party chairmanship last week.

The Meretz convention also voted against a proposal to institute two party chairmen, an idea designed to allow a Jewish and an Arab leader of the party.

Will Israel’s Left Wing Form an Alliance Ahead of the New Election? First, Heads Need to Roll

„The present need calls for a big and significant left-wing bloc alongside the center,“ said Zandberg, repeating a similar call she made before the last election, which Gabbay rejected after polls held by both parties at the time showed a merger wouldn’t increase their total number of seats.

Zandberg’s rushed proposal also signals to left-wing voters that if such a union never comes, the fault would rest with Labor.

Other Labor member do not support a union with Meretz. „In the Labor Party’s current condition, we need to join Kahol Lavan and run on a joint slate,“ said one of the party’s lawmakers.

Israeli Defense Chief Accuses Center-left, ultra-Orthodox Parties of Thwarting ‚Terrorist‘ Lawmaker’s Removal From Knesset

(4.6.2018) Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Monday that the reason lawmaker Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) is still sitting in the Knesset is because members of the center-left and ultra-Orthodox parties refuse to support her dismissal.

Lieberman said he „cannot understand why (Deputy Health Minister) Yaakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism), (opposition head) Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union), and Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid), are supporting this terrorist.“ Lieberman also snapped at Meretz chairwoman Tamar Zandberg, saying: „nobody expects anything else from you.“
