The head of the Labor party's court of appeals Yigal Shapira decided Friday that Sunday's vote for the date of the next Labor leadership race must be held by secret ballot if demanded by 10 percent of the attendees of Sunday's party convention.

Shapira accepted an appeal filed by Labor MK Erel Margalit that was supported by Mks Shelly Yakimovitch and Omer Bar-Lev.

The decision was a blow to current Labor Chairmen Isaac Herzog. Never-the-less, Herzog expressed confidence that the convention would approve his proposal to hold the race in July 2017 and not Margalit's appeal for December 2016.
