Labor Party Unit Repudiates Rafi List Headed by B-G

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The Labor
Party's central bureau voted 17-0
Monday night to . support the
party's own lists exclusively in
next October's general elections.
The vote was a repudiation of
the Rafi list headed by former
Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion

Ai:hough the latter was not men-
tioned by name. But political
experts said there was a 50-50
chance that some former members
of the Rafi faction would defect
from Labor Party ranks. Five Rafi
Members abstained in Monday

night's vote.
The Labor Party bureau met for
the purpose of averting a split.

Premier Golda Meir exhorted the
Rafi adherents to stay within
party ranks. She said she didn't
ask them to renounce Ben-Gurion,
the man or his ideological heritage,
but to reject his rival election list.

Mrs. Met!r was supported in
her plea by Shimon Peres. for-
ager secretary of the Raft faction
who said he supported Ben-
Gurion and what he stood for
hat would urge all party mem-
hers to rally around the Labor
banner.

According to political observers.
