Hardcore Leftist Wins Top Woman Spot on Labor list

The big winner in the Labor party's primaries was non other than one of Yechimovich's "target list" candidates, leftist television personality and Haaretz commentator, Merav Michaeli, who claimed the the first spot as the woman candidate, despite the fact that she did not have the support of party leader Shelly Yechimovich.

Earlier this month, Yechimovich screened Michaeli's calls and ignored her SMS messages notifying her about joining the party, since according to Yechimovich Michaeli would have a bad effect of the center-left image shes is trying to paint Labor party.

"The most bitter pill Yacimovich has to swallow is the incredible success of Haaretz columnist Merav Michaeli," wrote Anshel Pfeffer in Haaretz. "Michaeli was another of the candidates that Yacimovich saw as "too left-wing" for her list."
