78 days for elections, the future of the Democratic camp list is questioned. Disappointment of the five Meretz unification mandates, led by MK Nitzan Horowitz, a democratic Israel (led by former Prime Minister Barak, who has since resigned from the political arena, and Yair Golan) and the Green Movement (Autumn Shafir) - still resonate, even if not in the headlines of The new editions.

Prime Minister MK Horowitz's principle aspiration is to preserve the union and push for more connections. "We will grow even more in the next election," the supplier promised, trying to convince, this week. "We will definitely call for more connections and bring more left-wing voters home."

More on:

• 78 days for elections - and the Likud duel is nearing the boiling point

• Fighting immunity and highlighting the charge: This is what the Blue and White campaign will look like

• Revolutionary Right vs. Reactional Left | opinion

• Do not exclude blending with blue and white

MK Shapir also called for a broad connection on the left - "one united front", with the intention of examining a front that will represent the Democratic camp voters, Labor and parts of blue and white voters.

On the other hand, key figures in Meretz say there is no point in running the same list in the upcoming elections. "Shapir and Golan did not increase the number of voters, and Meretz, as a social left party, did not strengthen its power in this connection, on the contrary."

Another inherent tension within the current list comes from the fact that according to Meretz's constitution and regulations, primaries for the party's leader and its list must be held - before any election.
