      Appeal of Histadrut Leader's Selection Rejected

      The Tel Aviv District Court ruled, Thursday, against an appeal by Labor party Knesset members Eitan Cabel and Mickey Rosenthal, who wanted to hold general elections in the Histadrut Labor Federation to replace outgoing chairman Ofir Eini. Eini's nomination of professional-union leader Avi Nissenkorn to succeed him was approved by the federation's house of representatives.

      The court ruled that the house was an elected body that represents the general membership and is the group authorized to chose Eini's replacement. He added that the election was in keeping with an outline approved by the representatives at the beginning of the month.
