Party: HaAvoda-Gesher (The Labor Party-Bridge)
Leader: Amir Peretz
Slogan: People. Before Everything | בני אדם - לפני הכל
HaAvoda, the Israeli Labor Party, is social democratic and Zionist political party established in 1968. The Labor Party is highly associated with supporting and striving for Israeli–Palestinian peace, most notably under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the early 1990's. Over the years, its strength has ebbed and flowed depending on the leader and Israel's overall security situation. It currently holds just six Knesset seats, the lowest in its long and illustrious history. Long-time leader Amir Peretz won the primary held after the Party's dismal showing in April 2019, and brought in the Gesher party to help bolster its chances in this round. However, the party will be pressured on the right from Benny Gantz's Blue White centrist party and on the left by Ehud Barak and the Democratic Union.
