RAFI


RAFI
(Reshimat Poalei Israel—Israel Labor List)
   A political party founded in July 1965 by David Ben-Gurion and seven other Knesset members. The founders seceded from Mapai over the Lavon Affair. Teddy Kollek, its candidate, was elected mayor of Jerusalem in 1965, and it secured 10 seats in the Knesset that year. It remained in opposition to the government until the eve of the Six-Day War (1967), when it joined the Government of National Unity and Moshe Dayan (a member) became minister of defense. In January 1968, it joined Mapai and Ahdut Haavoda to form the Israel Labor Party. Ben-Gurion and some of his followers opposed Rafi joining in the Israel Labor Party and established a new party—Reshima Mam-lakhtit (State List). In the Knesset election of 1969, it won 4 seats.
