An eight-month political saga that began when Defense Minister Ehud Barak split Labor and left it without a leader neared its end Wednesday, as party members headed to polls to choose between MKs Shelly Yacimovich and Amir Peretz.

Polling stations across the country opened 10 a.m. and were set to close at 10 p.m. in order to allow the 66,310 Labor members to cast their ballots. Results were expected late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.
