Wednesday, July 12, Knesset member Isaac Herzog said that he accepts the proposal of the elected head of the labor party AVI Gabaa and remains on a post of the Chairman of the parliamentary opposition.
Recall that Gabay was negotiating with the Duke about retaining him as head of the opposition before second round of voting in the primaries. Then the Duke refused to declare support for GABA in exchange for the preservation of the status of the head of the opposition. July 11, Gabay and Duke met in tel Aviv, and for hours discussed the proposal of the new leader of the labor party.
Sam Gabay cannot hold a post of the head of the opposition, since it is not a Knesset member.
The head of the party «Avoda» AVI Gabay welcomed the decision of the Duke. At the ceremony of inauguration of the party Chairman AVI Gabay said: «I am very glad that Isaac accepted my offer. I’m going to spend a lot of time in the Knesset. We will work together, coordinated in a spirit of openness and friendship, as only a win, but our goal is to win the election. Our only mission is to restore hope to the citizens of the country.»
