Democratic pollster and strategist Stanley Greenberg is coming to Israel this week to advise Labor on their election campaign, party leader Shelly Yacimovich announced on Tuesday.
Greenberg worked on Defense Minister Ehud Barak's campaign in 1999, in which Barak was elected prime minister. He has also worked on campaigns for former US president Bill Clinton, former British prime minister Tony Blair, and former South African president Nelson Mandela. Greenberg currently advises the British Labor party and SPD, the German social-democratic party.
"It is an honor for me to work with Shelly Yacimovich and the Labor Party in the upcoming election," Greenberg said. "Yacimovich has the ideology and the strengths needed to bring change and make sure Israel will move in the right direction for its citizens."
Greenberg added that, in the past, he has worked with prominent politicians around the world, and expressed confidence that Yacimovich "has what it takes to lead her country."
