Ex-Meretz MK and former IDF deputy chief Yair Golan has won the Labor party primary with 95.15 percent of the vote.

Labor activist Azi Nagar (0.77%), billionaire socialist and online gambling magnate Avi Shaked (1.89%), and attorney and anti-corruption activist Itai Leshem (1.76%) also competed for the position of party leader.

Shaked stated during the primary preparation that he aimed to prevent the creation of a united left-wing bloc that Golan seeks to form.
