MK Tamar Zandberg is the new leader of Meretz after she won the first ever leadership primary held in the left-wing party on Thursday.

Zandberg will replace Zehava Gal-On, who dropped out of the race.

Former Peace Now secretary-general Avi Buskila finished second.

The turnout was only 53.6% among some 32,000 eligible voters.

Zandberg promised in campaign stops throughout the day that the party would win 10 seats in the next election.
