Labor MK Eitan Cabel vowed Thursday to take the Histadrut Labor Federation to court to challenge the results of Tuesday's leadership race, even though he lost by a huge margin to incumbent Histadrut chief Ofer Eini.

With more than 175,000 of some 200,000 votes counted, Eini led Cabel, 66.5 percent to 33.4%. Eini's Ogenim list for the Histadrut convention received twice as many votes as Cabel's Bayit Hahevrati list. Eini's candidate Galia Wallach also beat Eini's ally Tamar Zandberg to become head of the Naamat Women's organization.

"If someone thinks I will give up and not investigate how Eini ran this election, I assure you that I do not intend to rest or be silent," Cabel said. The Eini era is over. You can call me the next head of the Histadrut."

Cabel vowed to lead a fighting opposition in the Histadrut using the base that he won in the race. He said he would make sure that Eini will no longer be able to get away with what he had done in the past.
