  • Description


    Two shot Weaver and Avnery, editor of bib Israeli newspaper and noted political analyst and critic.



    Q: That effect - if any - do you expect these politico-financial scandals, such as the one surrounding Asher Yadlin, to have on the leadership battle between Shimon Peres and Yitzak Rabin?



    A: He says that paradoxically it might work in Pere's favour. Rabin on one hand is relative newcomer to politics and is not associate over any great period of time with the people and issues involved. Peres, on the other hand, is a political figure of many years standing. However, if may be that those in the Labour party who have to vote will see the need for a change of leadership and this is how the scandal could, paradoxically, work in Peres' favour.



    Q: What effect will it have on the Labour Party's chances in the elections.



    A: He says he expects it to have a big affect ...cutting into Labour's vote and possibly giving one of the smaller parties the role of power broker and perhaps for the first time giving a rightwing coalition a chance.



    Q: Who do you think will be Israel's next Prime Minister.



    A: Answers it difficult to say but infers that he thinks whoever wins Labour Party premiership election should still be favourite.



    Reverse questions.
