Yacimovich asks court to expel ex-Likudniks

Labor leadership candidate Shelly Yacimovich asked the Tel Aviv District Court on Friday to disqualify some 5000 ex-Likud members who joined Labor in its controversial recent membership drive.
The Labor party's administration and its internal court permitted them to join the party, provided that they formally leave Likud. Yacimovich wants them excluded, because they had not left Likud when they joined Labor, and they broke the law that prohibits being a member of two parties.
