Party head Zehava Gal-On was joined by MKs Ilan Gilon and Nitzan Horowitz, and Michal Rozin and Tamar Zandberg, numbers four and six on the party list.



During the tour, Gal-On said "we feel that we have a great opportunity to form a large, meaningful left wing camp but we must remember that we have more work ahead of us."

Meretz also marked the last day of the campaign by submitting a petition to the Supreme Court calling for them to implement the public housing law. The petition, submitted to the court by by Gilon, former Meretz MK Ran Cohen and two public housing residents, is directed at Housing Minister Ariel Atias, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, and the Amidar public housing company, calling for them to begin immediately implementing the law, which went into effect on January 1, 2013.
