The Histadrut Central Committee quietly accepted Monday the resignation of Yitzhak Ben Aharon as its Secretary General and named his deputy, Yeruham Meshel, Acting Secretary General until a successor is selected at the convention of the Histadrut Council early next year. There was no debate on Ben Aharon’s resignation and only a few speeches, some praising the former Secretary General and others–mainly by Gahal partisans–criticizing him. The vote for Meshel was 83-0 with a few abstentions.
