Representatives of Meretz, the Green Party, and other leftist groups will meet at the Kibbutz Movement's headquarters in Tel Aviv on Thursday to discuss forming a new framework to the left of Labor ahead of the next general election.
The doves hope to learn from the mistake of the so-called New Movement, which was formed immediately before the 2009 election and together with Meretz won only three seats.
"We have enough time to do make sure we get things right this time," Meretz leader Haim Oron said.
