Opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich called MK Isaac Herzog Friday morning to concede the Labor leadership race to him after the preliminary results showed she no longer had a chance to catch up. Yacimovich congratulated Herzog and the two of them agreed to work together to advance the goals of the party.

Labor has now overthrown its leader eight times since 2001.
