Meretz chief Zehava Gal-On said Thursday that she would continue to lead the party after the Central Elections Committee announced that the faction had finished with five mandates, and not four, as a partial count had suggested.

Gal-On had previously said that she would step down from the leadership in favor of Meretz no. 5 Tamar Zandberg if the final count had failed to top four mandates.

"Meretz gained the fifth mandate from young supporters, from IDF soldiers," Gal-On said in a statement.
