Labor meeting today could set date for leadership race

The secretariat of the Labor Party’s executive committee will hold a key meeting Thursday afternoon that could end a standoff that has stretched on for months regarding the date for the next Labor leadership race.

A three-hour meeting of the secretariat on Monday ended in a shouting match between Labor’s secretary- general Hilik Bar and the representatives of party chairman Isaac Herzog and his prospective challengers.

Bar wanted to hold a Labor convention by the end of July to set a date for the leadership race, but Herzog and MK Shelly Yacimovich wanted the convention to be postponed until at least September.
