The leaders of last summer's socioeconomic protest movement repeatedly insisted that their demonstrations were apolitical, but they never ruled out that the protests could yield new political frameworks.

The first party to emerge from the protests hit the headlines on Wednesday when Army Radio reporter Dan Dobin revealed that a group of protesters had created a new political framework that will run in the next election.

The party will reach out to people of all ages. But for technical reasons it will be formed out of the former Pensioners Party whose name has been changed from Gil (both happiness and age in Hebrew) to Door (generation in Hebrew).
