Former Labor MK Colette Avital, who was the party's candidate for president in 2007, told Meretz leader Zahava Gal-On Tuesday that she would be voting for Meretz.

Avital, who is a former diplomat, said she could not vote for Labor because party leader Shelly Yacimovich had abandoned the diplomatic issue.

"If Yacimovich changed Labor into a Centrist party, it is clear that the place of people on the Left is in Meretz," Avital said.
