Workerís Party of Eretz Yisrael (Mapai)

Description:

Mapai was a workersí party that was established in 1930 resulting from the unification of Hapo'el Hatza'ir and Ahdut Ha'avoda. David Ben-Gurion headed the party. As of 1935, Mapai lead the Zionist Movement. Its spiritual leader was Berl Katznelson. The official policy of the party was "constructive socialism", based on pioneering idealism coupled with political pragmatism. The party ran for the First to Fifth Knessets, was the largest party in the Knesset, and its leader was called upon to form all the Governments in the period. Toward the elections for the Sixth Knesset, Mapai formed the Alignment with Ahdut Ha'avoda-Po'alei Zion. In 1968, toward the elections for the Seventh Knesset, Mapai established the Israel Labor Party with Ahdut Ha'avoda-Po'alei Zion and Rafi.
