Herut Convention Re-elects Menahem Beigin As Head of the Party

Menahem Beigin was unanimously re-elected chairman of the Herut party at the closing session of the party’s seventh national convention which was extended an extra day.

The extension was made necessary because the delegates wanted more time to discuss the anticipated formation of a Herut faction within the Histadrut, Israel’s labor federation, which was voted previously during the convention after a strong debate.
