Chaim Oron has announced his resignation from the Knesset after over twenty years service originally in Mapam and now Meretz. After Yossi Beilin stood down, Jumes was elected leader of Meretz and he has made a strong and determined contribution in opposition to the extreme right wing government led by Netanyahu. Zehava Galon will be taking her place as a Meretz M.K. and I wish her every success for the rest of the term of this Knesset.
