Prof. Alon Tal will continue to serve as the head of the Green Movement, the party announced on Monday after two days of delay due to voting problems.

Tal, an environmental policy expert at Ben Gurion University, has been instrumental in creating much of Israel’s environmental framework, founding the legal advocacy group Adam Teva V’Din (Israel Union for Environmental Defense) and the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. In addition to being among the founders of the Green Movement party, Tal also served in the past as the chairman of Life and Environment, the umbrella organization of Israel’s environmental groups.

Results of the vote, which took place on Friday in Tel Aviv, were delayed because the party management discovered that a few of the voters had registered inappropriately, Tal told The Jerusalem Post. While the party was able to sort out the issue, Tal said his margin would have been wide enough not to make a difference regardless.

“As a party which believes fanatically good government and clean politics, we have zero tolerance for any type of corruption,” Tal said.
