MK Eitan Cabel (Labor) is putting himself up as a replacement for Ofer Eini, who resigned today as Chairman of the Histadrut Labor Federation.
In an interview with Kol B'Rama Eitan commented, "I have no doubt there is somewhat of a sour taste in one's mouth from all this, but Ofer -- whose decision I respect -- said that he has completed his full term, but I can feel there is a little bitterness there.But of this I have no doubt. I see myself as a worthy candidate."
"These days, with the Histadrut being what it is, I take moments to take a long, hard look at it and see the possibilities that stand before me. And I will tell you again specifically what I said -- I am going to do everything possible to be the next Chairman of the Histadrut," he added.
