Directed by: Unknown
Subtitles: English, Hebrew

At a special conference of the Mapai party, the members debate the decision of the minority faction led by David Ben Gurion to form a separate list. It is decided that a delegation will meet with Knesset Member David Ben-Gurion at his home in Tel Aviv and invite him to present his position to the party. This delegation arrives at Knesset Member Ben-Gurions house, and after long discussions, Ben Gurion rejects the request to appear before the secretariat and remains in his position to establish a separate list. The Rafi party will eventually run for the upcoming elections to the Knesset as a separate party.
