Ahdut Ha'avoda - Poalei Zion

Description:

A workers’ party established in 1946 following a split in Mapai. Most of its leaders were members of the United Kibbutz Movement. The party united with Mapam in 1948, and ran within the framework of the union for the First and Second Knessets . Ahdut Ha’avoda reemerged as an independent party in 1954 due to ideological differences with Mapam, and four MKs left the Mapam parliamentary group assuming the name Ahdut Ha'avoda-Po’alei Zion, even though the House Committee did not recognize them as a parliamentary group. The party ran independently for the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Knessets, and was a member of all the Governments formed in the course of these Knessets. Prior to elections for the Sixth Knesset, it joined the Alignment with Mapai, and in 1968, it was among the founders of the Israel Labor Party. In the political sphere Ahdut Ha'avoda was considered an "activist" party, and when the Likud was established in 1973, some of its members joined the new list. At that time, the first territorial compromise plan in the Labor Party- the "Allon Plan" - was formulated by Yigal Allon, who was a senior member in Ahdut Ha’avoda.
