Israeli Knesset Speaker Avraham Burg’s apparent victory in Israel’s Labor Party election stemmed from a deal between Druse Cabinet minister Saleh Tarif and regional Druse leaders, according to the campaign of Defense Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, Burg’s rival. Burg’s campaign headquarters dismissed the charge and called on Ben-Eliezer to accept defeat.
