Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta December LETHBHlDQg MERALP-C Israeli voters anticipate new leadership By ARTHUR JERUSALEM With one eye on the Geneva peace talks and the other on their Israelis vote New Year's Eve in what could be the most hotly contested election in the Jewish state's 25-year history. Premier Golda Meir seems bound to win another four years in but Israelis ex- pect to see new faces in her government. The election is for a new 120-seat Knesset and the strongest party chooses the premier- Israeli setbacks at the out- set of the Middle East war in October and charges by gisgruntled generals that neither the government nor the high command was for the fight are expected to cost Mrs. Meir's Labor group many ballots and shift the voting to unpredictable new patterns Public anger has been di- rected at Mrs. Meir's defence Moshe who took the brunt of the blame for Israel's initial losses in the wir. But Mrs. Meir who scored 80 per cent in pop- ularity polls before the also has become a target for allegedly surrendering to pressure by the United States. Many voters oppose Israel's acceptance of the ceasefire. And many consider that Mrs. Meir's government accepted disadvantageous conditions for the Geneva peace conference. The premier has made it clear that her decisions were influenced by American urgmgs and U S arms supplies. DIVISIONS SHARP The election campaign in- dicates Israelis are sharply di- vided'on what positions Israel should take when the Geneva talks resume. Mrs. Meir argues that Israel should be prepared to return much of the square miles of Arab territory won in the 1967 six-day and keep only strategic areas essential for security. Others insist that most of I the excluding the vast Sinai are part of the Biblical of and belong to the Jewish nation. Peace talk fills the election but anothet issue is big in the voters minds money. Inflation was soaring skyward at about four per cent a month before the war and has leaped higher since. Some organizations estimate the Israeli cost of living has doubled in the past two years. Many blame Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir's Socialistic economic policy for much of the problem. The charging in- says the only way to save Israel from bankruptcy is more free less government control and less state industry. MORE UNDECIDED Polls show more undecided voters than in any previous with about a third of the eligible voters unsure. The voting age dropped from 21 to 18 this year and official figures says young most of them in will be voting for the first time The debate on how to settle with the Arabs and how to im- prove the country's economy resolves around the three main groups. Together they control about 90 per cent of the 120-seat legislature. Heading the list is Mrs. Meir's Labor a merger of three Socialist fac- tions and the semi- independent Marxist Mapam party. Labor parties have dominated every election since the first in but have never won an absolute ma- jority. Every government so far has been a coalition. The traditional runner-up has been the led by Menachem a former terrorist in old British man- date Palestine. Begin heads the of four newly merged parties. With Labor and the right splitting most of the the balance of power traditionally falls to the religious which stand for close alliance of synagogue and state.
