      Labor Primaries Pit Current Chairwoman Against Former Chairman


      Three days after the Likud party chose its list for the Knesset, the Labor party will hold its primaries on Thursday. 450 polling stations in 70 points will open at 10:00 a.m. and close at 10:00 p.m. There will also be three mobile polling stations that will travel to remote communities and allow party members living in those communities to cast their ballots.

      The primaries are expected to be a tight race between candidates favored by current party chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich and candidates favored by her bitter rival, the party's former chairman Amir Peretz.
