The Labor Party, in its various incarnations, was a member of many of Israel's governments. The original parties that made up Labor, including major stakeholder Mapai, headed the coalition government from 1949–1965. Once the Labor Party was founded, it continued to play a central role in Israeli governments. The party controlled the main executive offices, including the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Finance, the Defense Ministry, and the Education Ministry. In 1977, the Labor Party found itself in the opposition for the first time (as part of the "Alignment"), where it remained until 1984.
From 1984–1990, Labor played a central role in the Unity Governments, and many Labor MKs served as ministers, with Yitzhak Rabin serving as Defense Minister throughout that period. In 1990, Labor moved to the opposition for the second time. After the elections for the 13th Knesset in 1992, the Labor Party, led by Yitzhak Rabin, returned to head the coalition and had 13 ministers in the government. After three years in the opposition during the 14th Knesset (1996–1999), the Labor Party once again returned to leadership, this time within the framework of "One Israel" (Yisrael Ahat). Since 2001, however, the Labor Party has only been a secondary partner in governments headed by the Likud and Kadima. Between 2011 and 2020 Labor remained in opposition - the longest period out of power in its history. It returned to the coalition in 2020 under Netanyahu's 5th government (represented by Ministers Amir Peretz and Itzik Shmuli). It maintained its coalition status also in the Bennett-Lapid governmemt, represented by Ministers Merav Michaeli, Nachman Shai and Omer Bar-Lev.
