Yael Cohen-Paran to receive spot on Labor party list

Yael Cohen-Paran, an environmental activist who ran unsuccessfully for the Knesset in 2009 and 2013 on the Green Party’s list, will receive one of the five spots on the Labor party’s list that is reserved for Tzipi Livni to assign.

So far Livni has promised seats to Amir Peretz, Manuel Trajtenberg, Amos Yadlin and Kasnia Svetlova, although their exact position is not yet clear. One of them will probably get the 11th spot that is reserved for her to choose together with party leader Herzog, meaning that after assigning Cohen-Paran, she still has one seat remaining to give out. She will almost definitely choose the candidate for the final seat today as the Labor party is meeting at 17:00 to approve the list for the upcoming Knesset.
