Labor leadership candidates Amram Mitzna, Shelly Yacimovich and Isaac Herzog wrote election committee chairman Ra'anan Cohen on Monday asking him to disqualify 2,040 forms from the party's registration drive that candidate Amir Peretz asked to add to Labor's membership rolls on Thursday.

Peretz claimed that the forms had mistakenly been left out of the list that was released on Thursday.

His spokesman said he had photocopies of the forms stamped by the party as arriving ahead of the submission deadline.

Peretz's opponents said including the forms in the membership list was forbidden by the party's bylaws.
