Mark Mellman, the American political strategist who advised Finance Minister
Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid Party in the January election, won the Best International
Campaign award from the American Association of Political Consultants on Friday
night for his work on the Israeli campaign.
Because of Shabbat, Mellman
did not attend the ceremony, in which his firm received multiple awards, which
are often referred to as the “Oscars” of political consulting. However, a member
of the Mellman Group received the awards for him.
