Prime Minister's Office director-general Eyal Gabai believes that Israel's current economic structure will not change unless MK Shelly Yachimovich (Labor) becomes prime minister, according to Army Radio's recordings of Gabai's meeting with protesters Wednesday night.

Gabai also told them that Israel will not become a welfare state under the current government.

Yachimovich praised Gabai's comments, saying that she agrees that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not bring real change.

Labor’s election committee decided Monday that despite the thousands of appeals on the party’s membership list, the list will be finalized August 30 and the race will be held on time on September 12 with a potential second round on September 21.
