Meretz UK congratulates Zahava Gal-On on her election earlier this year to the leadership of Meretz in Israel.
Since winning the vote, Zahava has made quite an impact on Knesset life, criticising the latest attempt by government to curb the authority of Israel's High Court, condemning an attack by hooligans on Israeli Arabs in a shopping mall, and confronting right-wing activists while touring Hebron with other Meretz MKs. Her frank defence of democracy at this year's 12th Herzliya Conference also commanded attention.
B'hatzlacha, Zahava! We look forward to your future work in support of peace, human rights and political sanity, and your action to rejuvenate Meretz... which are already bearing fruit!
