MKs to grill Herzog on reports of political tricks

The Zionist Union faction will convene at the Beit Berl Teachers College in Kfar Saba Monday for a meeting that was supposed to focus on ideological issues.

But MKs said they would demand answers at the event from Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog, following reports that he intends to use a political maneuver to try to block an election for the Labor leadership ahead of the next general election. The Zionist Union is a joint list of Labor and the Hatnua party of MK Tzipi Livni.

Ma’ariv Hashavua, The Jerusalem Post’s sister newspaper, reported over the weekend that Herzog intended to ask Labor’s institutions to delay the next election for the Labor chairmanship from its current timing of winter or spring 2016 to the end of 2017, which might be after the next general election.
