Labor Party chairman Isaac Herzog on Wednesday praised the results of the primaries in which his predecessor, Shelly Yacimovich, emerged as the big winner, capturing the third slot on the slate.

Herzog released a statement calling the list “the best, cleanest, most courageous with fighters for Zionism who have experience and outside-the-box thinking, deep ideology, and great ability to get things done.”

Herzog said the list represents all sectors of Israeli society and predicted that it could lead Israel for the next four years.

“Labor has just gotten started and there is room to join and be a part of it,” he said. “We have two months now to go across the country, knock on every door, and call upon the citizens of Israel to take the driver’s seat in this country together with us and bring about the change that all of Israel wants.”
