Labor Secretary-General Hilik Bar did not succeed in his effort to bring about a compromise date for the next party leadership race on which all possible candidates could agree.
Current party chairman Isaac Herzog entrusted Bar, who is not part of any camp in the party, to mediate among MKs Shelly Yacimovich, Isaac Herzog, Amir Peretz, and Herzog. He was supposed to reach a compromise by 10 days ago.
But as of Sunday, Herzog and Yacimovich remained a full year apart. Yacimovich wants the race to be held at the end of 2016 but Herzog is insisting on it only being held at the end of 2017.
