For the first time, in the Labor Party's list for the next Knesset, women will receive three places in the top ten. Three more places will be reserved for women up to 21st place. So that at least six places will be reserved for women in the first 21 places.

In addition, Gabbay decided that the list would reserve three spots, the second, tenth, and sixteenth spots. The representatives of the kibbutzim were promoted to 14th place, and two representatives of minority groups were vouchsafed the 17th and 23rd places.
