The Israel Democracy Institute declared MKs Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) and Eitan Cabel (Zionist Union) the Outstanding Parliamentarians of 2014 on Tuesday.

The IDI committee, led by former deputy Supreme Court president Theodor Or, determined that Lavie “worked tirelessly…as the chairwoman of the Committee on the Advancement of the Status of Women and Gender Equality in the 19th Knesset. She also distinguished herself through the legislation she advanced, especially in the area of prevention of sexual harassment, her plenary speeches and her use of the Knesset’s Research and Information Center.”

Cabel, who was Labor faction chairman in 2014, “worked vigorously and stood out for his work in the Knesset plenary, his legislative activity and his involvement in Knesset caucuses,” the committee wrote. “Among other things, he promoted legislation in a wide range of areas, such as consumer protection and prevention of cruelty to animals.”
