Lazimi, Kariv, Rayten win big in Labor primary
The Labor party primary includes 34 candidates. The first spot on its list is reserved for Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli, who won the party leadership election on July 18.
Both primaries are for the parties' lists for the Knesset and not for the lead of the party.
Merav Michaeli's back-to-back primary victories were the first ever since the Labor party began its holding primary elections in the early 90s.
Michaeli is expected to win decisively, according to two sources in the party. The question is how big a margin she will win by.
Movers and shakers in Israeli society.
The list will be headed by Labor leader Merav Michaeli, followed by former MK Omer Bar-Lev, who is a former commander of the elite IDF unit Sayeret Matkal.
