      Histadrut: Cabel is Not a Member; Can't Run for Chair


      The appeals committee of the Histadrut Labor Federation's central election committee decided, Thursday, to reject the appeal by Member of Knesset Eitan Cabel of the election committee's decision not to allow him to run against Ofir Eini for leadership of the union. The appeals committee ruled that Cabel may not run because he is not a member of the federation.

      Cabel called the ruling a "political decision in legal disguise which proves how scared Eini is of democratic competition."
