A petition submitted by the Labor Party to disqualify Shimon Peres, Dalia Itzik and Haim Ramon from running on the Kadima list for the 16th Knesset in the upcoming elections was rejected on Wednesday by the Supreme Court. The legal dispute revolved around whether or not the three MKs should be defined as MKs who had left their party in return for "compensation" from a rival party with a different platform from the party on whose ticket the MKs had originally been elected. According to the law, if an MK is defined as having left his party in the above circumstances, he may not be able to run in the next election for any party that had been represented in the outgoing Knesset. The only way an MK who leaves his party in mid-term is free to run on any ticket in the following election is if he resigns from the Knesset "close to the date" that he left his party.
