Labor leader Gabbay takes first step toward departure

Labor leader Avi Gabbay began a process on Wednesday that could lead to replacing him as chairman of the party that he led to a record low of six seats in the April 9 elections.
In a meeting with the party's elder statesman, Amir Peretz, Gabbay told him he would convene a party convention within 45 days. 
The steps are set to be authorized by the Labor Executive Committee in the afternoon.
