Labor leader Avi Gabbay promised 'surprises' and the merging of political parties, perhaps including Labor, ahead of April's national elections.

"There are going to be surprises and party mergers ahead of the elections," Gabbay said on Saturday. "Our party's friends need to commit not to sit in a Netanyahu-led government. They need to commit to changing the government. I was a minister in Netanyahu's government and know that it is not possible to create change from there."

Gabbay also promised that the Labor's list will include "people with vast experience," and claimed the Labor has a list that "can win in the upcoming elections."
