Meretz elected the 10
members of its list for the 19th Knesset in the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds on
MKs Ilan Gilon and Nitzan Horowitz were expected to get the
second and third spots on the list, with the primary race heating up for those
that follow, especially the fourth, which could realistically get into the
Knesset according to polls and is saved for a woman.
The 10 potential
MKs were elected out of a group of 17 candidates by 1,000 Meretz Central
Committee members for the party that currently has three Knesset
Meretz also guaranteed gender equality in the top six spots on
their list, in which the fourth and sixth are saved for a woman in addition to
party leader Zehava Gal-On.
