The Labor Party spokespersons' office on Thursday called on party MK Eitan Cabel to resign because of the remarks he made about the party's poor leadership record in the last decade and the comments he made deriding a prospective candidacy by former party leader Amram Mitzna for the party's top post, Army Radio reported.

Cabel needs to return his Knesset mandate that he received from the party faction immediately and end his membership in the party, the Labor Party spokespersons' office said in a written statement.

Cabel's earlier comments came during an interview with Army Radio when he said, “We have switched leaders so many times and it has never worked, so it doesn’t matter who leads this crazy party anymore.” He added,  “I would tell Mitzna: You were already burned once in that job, and next time, the fire can hurt even more.”
