The Labor Party's committee for party affairs will discuss on Sunday the initiative to carry out the election to the party's Knesset list in the party's 4,000-member central committee and not among the party's 117,000 members. If the decision is approved in the party affairs committee, the party's central committee is expected to give the final approval on December 20. Meanwhile, sources close to former prime minister Ehud Barak told Israel Radio that if the election method were changed, Barak would agree to run for the Knesset list. Barak announced last week that he wouldn't run for the list after what he termed the "faked [membership] drive."
