Supporters of Gabbay to publish ad to back his leadership

Supporters of Labor leader Avi Gabbay on Monday have begun collecting signatures in support of him as he faces increased attempts to topple him ahead of the April 9 election.
The supporters are also publishing an advertisement that will be released in the beginning of January that will say, "We, members of the Labor Party, support Chairman Avi Gabay and call on all party members and elected officials to stand behind him. Together we will bring about the change."
The ad will also quote Gabbay saying, "I pledge to return Israel to a path of truth and deep equality for all groups in Israeli society, Jews, Druze and Arabs, and to bring Israel back to the path of hope, security, peace and a just economy.”
