The left-wing Meretz party agrees to cancel its primaries ahead of the March elections, meaning its slate will mostly be a duplicate of the previous elections.
Nobody stepped up to challenge the leadership of current party leader Nitzan Horowitz.
The slate will see one change, however, as Nazareth-based political and social activist Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi will get the fourth slot. She is the second Arab member in Meretz’s top 5, alongside MK Issawi Freij.
