Members of the left-wing Meretz Party will vote in the party's first primary on Thursday to decide its list for the April 9 Knesset elections.

The voters will submit their votes electronically from 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. and results are expected in by 11 p.m. Israel time.
Meretz has around 21,000 members who are eligible to vote. Twenty-three candidates are running for around five or six seats in the 21st Knesset, as projected by recent polls. 

After leader Tamar Zandberg, among those aiming to secure top spots in the party list are incumbent Knesset members Ilan Gilon, Mossi Raz, Michal Rozin and Israeli-Arab Esawi Frej.


In the previous elections, Meretz won five seats.
