Labor moves to semi-computerized primary after Likud vote

Labor's 60,424 members will vote in 140 booths in 68 locations from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, following technical difficulties in the Likud party primary. Only those who joined the party at least six months ago are eligible to participate in the primary.
Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich said she hopes not the results of the primary do not pull the party too far to the left, following weeks in which she had labeled Labor as "centrist."
"I want a balanced list," she told activists on Tuesday night.
"In an absurd way, I have a challenge that is similar to that of [Prime Minister] Binyamin Netanyahu," Yacimovich said, referring to the outcome of the Likud primary. "He also doesn't want some people in his party."
