||Democratic Movement for Change (DMC)
A short-lived centrist party that was established toward the elections for the Ninth Knesset, under the leadership of Professor Yigael Yadin. The party was made up of former members of the Labor Party and the Likud, as well as personalities who had not been involved in politics before. The declared purpose of the party was to bring about a change in Israeli politics, while introducing a constitution. The party joined Menahem Beginís Government in 1977, but its power was limited in view of the fact that Begin did not need it for a majority in the Knesset. Within one year, the DMC started to disintegrate into a number of parliamentary groups, and ceased to exist.
