Although only 33 percent of the total number of votes cast in Tuesday's election for Histadrut chairman were counted, the labor organization said Wednesday it appeared Ofer Eini was headed towards a resounding victory as he had received over 90% of the votes counted to that point. His closest competitor, Leon Ben Lulu, received only 8.4% of the vote. Eini assumed leadership of the Histadrut in January 2006 when Amir Peretz left the organization after being elected head of the Labor Party. Eini's party, "Agunim," was also headed for victory in the voting for the members of the governing board of the Histadrut, receiving 72% of the counted ballots.
