Report: Pensioners Party to Run Again

The Dor "new social pensioners party" is scheduled to announce, Tuesday morning, that it is fielding a Knesset list in the January elections, according to a Tuesday-morning report by Yisrael Hayom. Former minister Rafi Eitan, who will head the list, said surveys indicate the party will qualify for three seats.

Eitan was one of two members of the Gil Pensioners Party who served as a minister during the 17th Knesset, when the party debuted with seven seats. In the last election, it failed to qualify.
