The head of the Labor Party’s internal court, attorney Amnon Zihroni, decided on
Friday to give Labor chairman Ehud Barak and two ministers who seek to replace
him until Wednesday to reach a compromise on an agreed date for a key Labor
convention that will decide whether to leave Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s
coalition and advance the next Labor leadership race. Zihroni will try to
mediate between the two sides, and if unsuccessful, he will make his own
decision about timing for the convention by the end of next week.
convention date is seen as a deadline for Netanyahu to take steps to bring the
Palestinians back to the negotiating table.
