Labor Party leader Shelly Yacimovich on Thursday called on party members to exercise their vote in the party primary scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.
Speaking in an interview with Army Radio, Yacimovich defended her comments from Tuesday that she hoped the party list would not be "too left-wing," contending that the Labor Party has traditionally represented the political Center.
"Labor is the party that established the State of Israel and has always represented the central camp in the state," Yacimovich stated.
She said that her desire for Labor to be a party representing the Center did not mean that she was abandoning the peace process.
"Unequivocally, the Labor Party wants peace and believes in the two-state solution, that is a central vision of the Israeli society...not a marginal school of thought."
