Givatayim mayor Effi Stanzler will be the new JNF Chairman, Israel Radio reported Monday. The World Zionist Labor movement nominated him for the position, though as per an agreement among the parties in the World Zionist Organization, he was the only candidate. Ex-Labor MK Hagai Marom was elected Treasurer of the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organization. Betar head Danny Danon was elected World Likud Chairman. He defeated Yuval Steinitz, the candidate nominated by Labor Party Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu. Before the vote, Netanyahu announced the he would establish a new International Likud Movement, claiming that a group of delegates at the convention was preventing a democratic election. Retired judge Uri Shtruzman resigned from chairing the convention due to disagreements within the movement.
