Founded in 1984

Yahad ("Together") was a party formed by Ezer Weizman in the run-up to the 1984 elections. Seeking to become the deciding factor in political questions, Yahad positioned itself in a familiar centrist position between the Likud the Labor Alignment (Ma'arach). It supported the accelerated withdrawal of the IDF from Lebanon, presented dovish positions regarding the peace process with the Palestinians, and called for change in the electoral system.


Yahad received only three seats, fewer than the six forecast by public opinion polls. Despite the disappointment, Yahad had a great deal of bargaining power because of the stalemate that the elections had created between the major blocs. A short time later, Yahad joined the Labor Alignment and merged into the Labor Party in the course of the 11th Knesset.
