Baram, Uzi

(1937- )
   Born in Jerusalem and educated in political science and sociology at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he was a member of the Knesset on the Alignment Party list. He served as secretary general of the Israel Labor Party from 1984 until he resigned in January 1989 to protest Labor's decision to join a Government of National Unity led by Yitzhak Shamir. In May 1996, Baram was reelected on the Labor list, and on 17 May 1999, he was reelected to the 15th Knesset on the One Israel list. He did not contest the 2003 elections (see KNESSET ELECTIONS) for the 16th Knesset but retained influence within the Israel Labor Party.
