Meretz chairwoman Tamar Zandberg will lead her party into a Knesset election for the first time on Tuesday after she won its first leadership primary in March 2018.

As expected, the party’s campaign on Monday and throughout recent weeks has been most visible in Tel Aviv, although it will also hope to capture a significant share of the Arab-Israeli vote.

On Monday afternoon, Meretz showcased its diverse list of candidates for the Knesset in a seven-hour Facebook Live broadcast – featuring incumbent members of Knesset – lawmaker hopefuls and activists answering questions and aiming to convince those still undecided to vote Meretz.

“We have one ballot slip and with that slip we want to do a lot of things: to vote for our ideology, to vote to get rid of Netanyahu and to vote for another government,” said Zandberg on the broadcast.


“What is important to remember is that in these elections there is a rare opportunity that doesn’t come around every election. This time, the ideological vote is also the strategic vote. A vote for Meretz is a vote for the real Left and is really necessary opposite the Kahanist Right that is supposed to enter the Knesset,” Zandberg said.

“It’s very simple. In order to win, Gantz needs 61 recommendations. He will not have 61 recommendations without Meretz.”
