MK Merav Michaeli, the party’s candidate for president, said: “The truth has won the conspiracy and petty politics. “Now we can and can recover, bring the Labor Party back to the forefront of politics and bring the truth back to politics.”
She added: “I call on all members and members of the party, leave the games and political activism aside and give backing to the party’s resurgence. The strong, renewed and genuine Labor Party will be a significant player in rebuilding our camp.”
MK Michaeli was represented by attorneys Yossi Ashkenazi and Or Diskin, from the firm of Herzog Fox Ne’eman.
Gil Beilin, the candidate for the leadership of the Labor Party: “I welcome the decision of the High Court, since this is an opportunity for change. Merav Michaeli and Itzik Shmuli are looking for the easy life and that is exactly what brought us to 0 seats: again dependence on an external star, which is on the verge of the blocking percentage. I will demand a connection only with a bloc in which the independence of the Labor Party will be preserved. For me, any connection is just a parking space until the next election in which we will appear as a significant list thanks to our actions in the coming years in accordance with the ideology of the work. “
