Labor primaries: Candidates persuade undecided voters

One day before Labor primaries, candidates make final efforts to gain support from undecided voters. Peretz's headquarters exhibit optimism

The five final Labor chairmanship candidates exhausted last-minute efforts in preparation for Monday's primary elections.


The candidates all called dozens of undecided voters to try to get their support.


Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak tried to convince them that he was the best choice as he was willing to make far-reaching steps for peace, but added that he wouldn't make them unless there was a partner on the Palestinian side.


Ami Ayalon and Ehud Barak, the two leading candidates according to polls, said they hoped that the last-minute efforts would yield results and bring many voters to the ballots.


Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, one of Barak's biggest supporters, is scheduled to visit Arab communities on Monday to ensure that the voters from the sector cast their vote.


At the headquarters of party chairman Amir Peretz, many volunteers were preparing to help by driving voters to the ballots. The defense minister's supporters were optimistic and said that positive energies were dominant among the activists.


Ophir Pines-Paz and Danny Yatom did everything possible to ensure that they would not be humiliated by receiving very few votes.
