Herzog may give up reserving slot for ex-general on Labor list

Labor leader Isaac Herzog may decide ahead of the party primary — scheduled for Tuesday — not to reserve a slot on the list for a person from the security-military establishment, officials at the party told Channel 10 TV.

Herzog and Tzipi Livni may not necessarily totally forgo a military personality, but — in order to appease many of the candidates in the primary — they have decided not to set aside a high slot in the list for one.

Labor’s list contains many pre-reserved slots, and the two positions in the top ten (Nos. 2 and 8) reserved by Livni for herself and for Amir Peretz mean that veteran Labor MKs may be elected to slots that may not necessarily be realistic for a Knesset seat, considering the party’s performance in the polls.
