Rest of Labor List Includes 'Ins' and 'Outs'

Social activists Stav Shapir and Itzik Shmuli were elected within the top 15 spots of the Labor party Knesset ballot, according to results released Friday, just ahead of former Kadima Member of Knesset Nachman Shai.

With polls indicating that Labor will receive about 20 seats in the January voting, Knesset member Dan Ben-Simon appears on his way out. Chairman Yariv Oppenheimer of Peace Now did not place high enough to expect to enter the Knesset. Neither did Noam Schalit, the father of former hostage soldier Gil'ad Schalit, or Chili Tropper, the son of Rabbi Daniel Tropper.
