Former prime minister Ehud Olmert says he will be voting Labor for the first time in his life in the coming election.
“I believe [Labor leader] Merav Michaeli will be this election’s surprise,” he tells Ynet.
“I don’t come from Labor roots,” says Olmert, who spent much of his time in politics in Likud. “I fought it for many years.”
He says Michaeli rehabilitated the party after the devastation caused to it by former leaders. “I trust her that what she says today — she’ll do tomorrow.”
