Following Paz-Pines were MK Isaac Herzog, Ben Gurion University President Avishay Braverman, MK Yuli Tamir, and former Jerusalem police chief Ami Ayalon. Benyamin Ben Eliezer, who had been projected to win one of the top five slots behind Party Chairman Amir Peretz, was in eighth place, behind Matan Vilnai and Ephraim Sneh.
