Amir Peretz Replaces Eitan Cabel in Histadrut Race


Member of Knesset Eitan Cabel withdrew his candidacy, Friday, from May's election for chairman of the Histadrut Labor Federation. Arutz Sheva has learned that Cabel will be replaced on the ballot by fellow Labor party Knesset member Amir Peretz, who preceded incumbent Ofir Eini as leader of the union.

The Histadrut's election committee recently ruled that Cabel was ineligible for the post because he was not a member of the Histadrut.
