From Academic Kids

Tzomet or Tsomet (Hebrew: צומת, meaning "crossroads") is a secular, right-wing Israeli political party.

Contents

History

The party was founded by Rafael Eitan in 1987 as a breakaway from the Tehiya party, and in the next elections it won 2 seats in the Knesset.

11th Knesset (23/07/1984 - 01/11/1988)

Members: Rafael Eitan.

12th Knesset (01/11/1988 - 23/06/1992)

Members: Rafael Eitan, Yoash Tsiddon (Chatto).

13th Knesset (23/06/1992 - 29/05/1996)

Members: Pini Badash, Haim Dayan, Rafael Eitan, Alex Goldfarb, Moshe Peled, Esther Salmovitz, Eliezer Sandberg (Mudi), Gonen Segev.

In 1992 Tzomet gained 8 seats and became the big winner of the elections. However, during the 13th Knesset, three members—Gonen Segev, Esther Salmovitz, and Alex Goldfarb—left and founded the Yi'ud party. The latter two left the Yi'ud as well, continuing as the Atid party. The three left the party because Segev was offered the position of Minister of Energy by the Avoda-Meretz administration if he voted in favour of the Oslo Accords, which Tzomet opposed, and which would not have passed without his vote.

14th Knesset (29/05/1996 - 17/05/1999)

Members: Haim Dayan , Rafael Eitan, Moshe Peled.

Tzomet joined the Likud-Tzomet-Gesher list (the so-called National Camp List) for the 1996 elections, ensuring the Tzomet top of Knesset seats. The high place on this list for several Tzomet members was a reward for the withdrawal of Eitan as prime minister candidate. Eventually, four Tzomet candidates were voted for the Knesset.

After 1996

After 1996 Tzomet ran in the 15th and 16th Knesset elections, but did not win any seats.

Points of view

Fundamental

The Tzomet is a secular, right-winged party that is opposed to the Oslo agreements and the "land for peace" program. It is also in favour of a secular state, like Shinui and Yachad.
