GIMLA'EI ISRAEL PARTY (Party of the Retired)

Israeli political group formed in 1996 under the leadership of Nava Arad, member of the Israel Labor Party, in anticipation of Knesset elections for the following May. Essentially meant to attract the attention of Israeli authorities to the rights of retired people, it won no seats in these elections and disbanded soon after.
